Interfaith Just Peacemaking | Jewish, Christian, and Muslim Perspectives on the New Paradigm of Peace and War (Thistlethwaite)
Interfaith Just Peacemaking is a collected work by 27 Jewish, Muslim, and Christian scholars and religious leaders on the ten "practice norms" of the peacemaking paradigm called "Just Peace." Just Peace theory, like the paradigm it most resembles, Just War theory, is a list of specific practices that are applied to concrete contexts. In Interfaith Just Peacemaking, a wholly new work, each "practice norm" is a separate chapter with a general introduction and then commentary by one Christian, Jewish, and Muslim contributor and a short conclusion. It is intended both as a general introduction to Jewish, Christian and Muslim views on just peacemaking, and as a textbook for interfaith and peace studies courses.
