"`After Terror' offers a sustained reflection by some of the world's most celebrated thinkers on the most pressing question of our time: how can we find ways to defuse the ticking bombs of terrorism and excessive interventions against it ? It offers an antidote to the fatalistic global holy war perspective that afflicts much contemporary thought, focusing instead on the principles, issues, and acts needed to shift course from alienation and conflict to a path of sanity and goodwill among cultures and civilizations. The central aim of the book is to advance contemporary thinking on the causes and implications of 9/11 and thus provide the essential elements of a blueprint for humanity. It features 28 original essays by some of the world's leading public figures, scholars, and religious leaders". -- back cover.

"[E]dited by Paul Germond and Steve de Gruchy".
Includes bibliographical references and index.
"I come from a society that has been deprived, discriminated against, oppressed and marginalised. What I found most attractive about Jesus Christ was just how he identified with those who belonged to such a group of persons. It was heart-warming that he actually sat at table with those whom society of the time considered scum, those whom it despised and vilified -- the prostitutes, the sinners and tax-collectors. What Jesus did was to say they belonged, they were insiders too, not strangers, not aliens. I found that to be a wonderfully affirming characteristic of Our Lord -- he came so that those who were excluded should henceforth be included, those who were apart should come together. That seems to me to have been at the heart of His message: 'I, if I be lifted up, will draw all to me' (p. [ix])". "If the church, after the victory over apartheid, is looking for a worthy moral crusade, then this is it: the fight against homophobia and heterosexism. I pray that we will engage in it with the same dedication and fervour with which we showed against the injustice of racism, so that we may rehabilitate the gospel of Jesus Christ in the eyes of many who have been deeply hurt and whose testimony we read in these pages. `Aliens in the Household of God' will enable us to come to the struggle as informed combatants" (p. [x]). -- Foreword.

"Edited by Duncan Dormor and Jeremy Morris".
Includes bibliographical references and index.
"We are a group of theologians who work mostly in a university context, and in theological education. .... Out of a basic belief that the Church of England should be able to move to a position of greater toleration of faithful, stable gay relationships, we want to lay out for those outside the academy, as well as within it, reasons why we believe this is a debate worth having in the church. It is the conviction of the authors of this volume that, for all that this is an issue on which there are serious matters of principle on both sides, and for all that the symbolic nature of the confrontation of Christian faith and modernity is very acute, this is not actually a decisive question for the survival of Christian faith itself, nor for the survival of the Church of England and of Anglicanism more widely". -- Intro., pp. 2-3.

Notes
"Reading Archbishop Desmond Tutu's 'An African Prayer Book' was a marvellous learning and refreshing experience." "The compositions are drawn from both African traditional and Christian spirituality and the composers are both black and white. The collection includes the works of Africans of the diaspora in the United States and the West Indies. The prayers are arranged into five sections consisting of Adoration, Contrition, thanksgiving, Supplication and Daily Life. The last section includes prayers that do not fall neatly in the other secions. Each section is preceded by an introduction."

"Edited by Richard H. Schmidt".
This book was envisioned as "a volume we could make available to any person or group of persons experiencing a wrenching loss. .... Fourteen authors responded to our invitation. The result is a kaleidoscope of stories, insights, ruminations, and expressions of faith. The pieces in this volume are stunning in their variety. They have two things in common: each is undergirded by the author's Christian faith, and each addresses the hard questions head-on. What are those hard questions ? Not every piece in these pages speaks to every concern, but several questions recur, like leitmotifs in a symphony: How can I make sense out of a devastating loss ? Where can I find support ? Where is God in this event ? Why does God allow it ? How can I forgive those responsible ?" -- Preface.
Contents divided into two main sections: Stories -- Reflections.
Contents: Preface dated Cincinnati, Ohio, March 15, 2007 / Richard H. Schmidt -- Pay Attention to the Judges / Gregory A. Russell -- Anatomy of Forgiveness / Robert Horine -- Yea, Though I Walk Through the Valley / David J.
