"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.
