|Books on Peace|
The members of the Conference Advisory Committee for the Nov. 2, 2002 interfaith peace conference recommended the following books:
One book I recommend most highly is
A Force More Powerful, A Century of Nonviolent Conflict, by Peter Ackerman and Jack Duvall, Palgrave, 2000. (It has been made into a television series, shown on PBS.)
- Rev. Cecil Findley
Making Friends of Enemies, Reflections on the Teachings of Jesus by Jim Forest, Crossroad, New York, 1987
Peace Be With You by Eileen Egan, Orbis Books, Maryknoll, New York, 1999.
- George Hinger
Here are two of my favorite "peace" books. Both express, in my opinion, a Jewish version of the kind of religious and spiritual courage and creativity necessary for a world at peace.
Tales of Tikkun: New Jewish Stories to Heal the Wounded World by Arthur Ocean Waskow and Phyllis Ocean Berman, Jason Aronson, 1996.
At the Entrance to the Garden of Eden: A Jew's Search for God with Christians and Muslims in the Holy Land by Yossi Klein HaLevi, William Morrow, 2001.
- Rabbi Brian Field
The World Council of Churches has an extensive list of books among the resources listed on their Decade to Overcome Violence Web site.
