A new, revised edition of Peace Primer is now available in our catalogue! Compiled by BPFNA Founding Director Ken Sehested, along with Lynn Gottlieb (Shomer Shalom Network for Jewish Nonviolence) and Rabia Terri Harris (Muslim Peace Fellowship), Peace Primer II: Quotes from Jewish, Christian, Islamic Scripture & Tradition aims to strengthen relations among the Abrahamic faiths.
It is common today to hear the claim that we are engaged in "a clash of cultures." The first step in addressing conflict is for all parties to listen to each other. That is the goal of this publication: to allow Christians, Muslims and Jews to listen to each other's scripture and tradition, particularly to hear what each has to say about seeking justice, pursuing peace and working for reconciliation.
"We live at a time when those who seek to make faith a barrier of division or a bomb of destruction parade their ugliness on the evening news," said Eboo Patel founder and president of Interfaith Youth Core. "But there is another movement under way – a movement of people with generous hearts who seek to make faith a bridge of cooperation. [Peace Primer II] is an important resource for strengthening the resolve of current interfaith leaders, and spreading the message of interfaith cooperation to new ones.”
