Description

In this book, Konard Raiser proposes a transformation of those processes of globalization, which have brought into being a complex system of mutual interdependence as well as mutual suspicions that often end in violence. Beginning with an examination of the root causes and long term implication of international cooperation and cross-cultural hostility, he argues for the creation of an “ecumenical space” for dialogue and the building of community.



Recognizing that religious sentiments and affiliations underlie many contemporary conflicts, Raiser challenges any attempt to co-opt the teachings of peace, shalom and Salaam as justifications for violence. Noting the complexity of humanitarian intervention by military powers, he opposes the return to a " logic of war" and calls for the strengthening of peaceful, political means of conflict resolution.



Developing themes suggested in his earlier Risk book – To Be The Church, Raiser calls on the ecumenical movement and its partners to demonstrate through their witness, service and ministry of reconciliation a caring for life amid an age of globalization.
