In 1940, when Hitler's bombers reduced Coventry's ancient cathedral to ruins, he coined a new word. He threatened to "coventrate" all of Britain. Coventry thus was given an iconic status as a symbol of the triumph of good over evil, of forgiveness over revenge, of reconciliation and peace over division and conflict. The ruins are still there today as a warning, but the new and magnificent new cathedral has become the powerhouse of a ministry both to the city and to international conflicts. The book is in three parts. Part 1 is a series of dramatic and moving stories of that outreach, from Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Part 2 describes the history of how the cathedral came to be such a unique and active symbol of renewal and peace. Part 3 asks what lessons are to be learned from that story for a world in greater danger and with deeper divisions than ever. Finally, the author, from his long experience of international reconciliation, defines the steps that are essential if the old wounds of history are really to be healed.

As director of the Centre for International Reconciliation in the famous new cathedral of Coventry, Kenyon Wright was responsible for projects in many parts of Europe, East and West, in Ireland, in Asia, and the Middle East. Previously, he served as director of an industrial institute in India and went on to play a leading role in founding the Scottish Parliament. For this, he was made a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire).
