This book describes the myriad of ways in which the Catholic Church is engaged in peacebuilding activities and operations around the world. In doing so, it explores the distinctive resources, concepts, and practices the church contributes to the process of transforming conflict and building a sustainable peace, and it reflects on the ways in which Catholic participation and leadership is testing, challenging, and renewing the church’s historic commitment to justice and peace (excerpt from chapter introducing the book).
