Editors: K. K. Kuriakose (Columbia University)
Book Description:
The culture of violence has gained a religious coloring in modern days. With a destructive technological impetus, the question arises: Is there abuse of religious teachings? Is their any religious basis for violence and war? Then follow questions about the purpose of religion and the significance of concepts of peace and non-violence. As some find justification for war and violence in their religion, an inquiry must be made about the influence of religious scriptures on peace.Globalization has had a varied impact on political, social, cultural, and religious behavioral systems. This landmark volume attempts to comprehend the concepts of nonviolence and peace within different religious and cultural traditions.
