Denne boken er et samarbeidsprosjekt mellom statsviteren Johan Galtung og religionsviteren Graeme MacQueen, hvor de utforsker sammenhengen mellom religion, spiritualitet og fred. Boken har to deler. F This book, jointly authored by Johan Galtung and Graeme MacQueen, explores how religion, and specific religions, relate to spirituality - an inner sense of something beyond our selves - and peace, a pattern of nonviolence and equity. In Part I the reader is taken on a tour of religions around the world, the religio-scape, from Occident to Orient and abrahamism to buddhism, in search of peace-building spiritualities. Religions are then scrutinized for their hard and soft aspects. In Part II this search is taken much further into the theory and practice of peace, with a focus on five Asian peace spiritualities, and on ways in which religions have inspired concrete peace-making.
