How does the just war theory apply to the war in Iraq? Can religion, which has been at the root of wars, illuminate a new path to peace? More than 50 theologians, peace activists, military experts, public policy analysts, and media commentators gathered together to answer these questions. This book is the result of their exploration. It offers clarity and hope. The participants included Jim Wallis, Joan Chittister, Drew Christiansen, Robert Royal, Michael Baxter, Gregory Reichberg, Mary Cusimano Love, Peter and Margaret O'Brien Steinfels, and many others.
