Subverting Hatred by Daniel L. Smith-Christopher
The Challenge of Nonviolence in Religious Traditions
The Tenth Anniversary Edition of a best-selling book on nonviolence in religious traditions.
Religious rivalries have been at the root of many human conflicts throughout history. Representatives of nine world religions offer insights into the fallen short of ideals, and how they can overcome the contagion of hatred through a return to traditional teachings on nonviolence.
Included are a new Foreword and Preface, a new Introduction by Daniel Smith-Christopher, two new chapters on Islam and the indigenous religion of the Maori, and a new Epilogue. In addition, a study questions have been added to each chapter.
Daniel L. Smith-Christopher is a professor of theological studies and director of the Peace Studies Program at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles
