More about this issue:

Is God a pacifist? In a world of escalating conflict, you have to wonder. We did—and in this issue, we've asked if peace is possible in a dynamic and rapidly evolving world. We question commonly held notions about spirituality, pacifism, and nonviolence, and explore with leading politicians, academics, and activists the relationship between our deepest spiritual principles and the politics of an evolving global society.

Is God a Pacifist?

Is peace the answer to a world in chaos? Against the backdrop of 9/11 and Iraq, WIE asks the hard questions about just wars and religious violence, and explores the relationship between our deepest spiritual principles and the politics of an evolving global society.
