In this volume, leading Catholic theologians, scholar-practitioners, and ethicists take up the challenge of developing a conceptually coherent, theologically accurate, spiritually enlivening, and practically effective approach to Catholic peacebuilding that can complement the rich Catholic teaching on the ethics of war. These original essays examine the role of Catholic peacebuilders in preventing and resolving conflicts, and reconciling divided societies from Colombia and the Philippines to Indonesia and South Africa. THey also consider how this work for peace can inform and be enriched by deeper reflection on the peacebuilding dimensions of social teaching, theology, sacraments, interreligious dialogue and the Church’s mission.
