About the Book

Written by an experienced practitioner in the field of faith-based diplomacy who has worked in some of the world’s roughest neighborhoods, this book begins with the premise that moral vision plays a key role in shaping individuals and communities.

It’s primary message is that the Abrahamic moral vision shared by Jews, Christians and Muslims, which is embodied as faith-based reconciliation, is a fresh approach to intractable identity-based conflict, an alternative to religious extremism and an ancient paradigm needed for the twenty first century.

A must read for today’s policymakers and for political, religious and social leaders.
