Christian peace theology:
internal critique and interfaith dialogue

nobel_headerOn March 1 I spoke at two break-out sessions on the topic of “Christian Peace Theology: Internal Critique and Interfaith Dialogue” at the Nobel Peace Prize Forum, Faith and Peace Day, in Minneapolis.  Here’s what I said I would do:

This session will survey theological debates over war and violence within the Christian tradition in a way that assumes others – particularly Muslims – are listening in. It will present Christian pacifism as the sort of internal critique that representatives of any faith tradition must honestly do in order to dialogue well with others in the service of peace.
