Religion can be a realm of extraordinary power, says U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan. It can offer solace in troubled times. It can make sense of the seemingly senseless. In Pathways to Peace, A. Jean Lesher, a dedicated participant in interfaith dialogue initiatives and an accomplished editor, has collected sayings from many of the world s religious traditions and leaders. Thematically structured according to a Jain chant for hope, love, and peace, Pathways to Peace envisions the transformation of conflict in our world into hope for the future through the wisdom of the world s faiths. It will be a source of discussion and reflection among members of all traditions who yearn for peace and greater understanding all over the world."
