Essays on nonviolence in the world's great religious traditions challenge the notion that religion begets violence around the world. Original.

From the Publisher:

What commonalties would we find among the world's major religious traditions if we focused on the subject of nonviolence? Would we find a straightforward, unambiguous uniformity among the spiritual teachings? Would we find some justification for aggression? Would we find exhortations to violence in some religious traditions and not in others? Would there be surprises in the textual interpretations of some international scholars as they assessed their religious traditions?
