The escalating threat of terrorism and the tragic events of recent history, in Asia and the Middle East and also much nearer home, illustrate the profoundly divisive and destructive character of religion. Those same histories suggest that the pursuit of ‘justice’ all too often simply compounds terror by generating a downward spiral of violence in the name of ‘retribution’.

This booklet asks whether Christianity, with its tarnished history, is simply further illustration of the polarising tendency of religion. Or has the Gospel something more radical and significant to offer on how we confront evil and alienation in a divided and war-torn world?
