Publications & Presentations

Faculty members publish new book on peacemaking in world religions 

Dr. Irfan A. Omar, associate professor of Theology, and Dr. Michael K. Duffey, associate professor emeritus of Theology, have published a new book titled Peacemaking and the Challenge of Violence in World Religions. The text includes a comprehensive exploration of the history, beliefs and practices around peace and violence in seven of the world’s major religions.

"Amid the many recent books on religions and peacemaking, this one clearly stands out. Not only do we hear the peace-message of each religion; we also are invited into an interreligious dialogue about those messages.  For college courses as well as for parish study groups, this book is a valuable, and an enjoyable, resource."
~ Paul F. Knitter, Union Theological Seminary
 
This book is the result of the Center for Peacemaking's October 2013 day-long symposium on Peacemaking and Nonviolence in World Religions. Purchase or review the book at Wiley or Amazon.

Afghan Peace Volunteers present at TEDx Kabul

Hakim Young serves as a mentor to the Afghan Peace Volunteers, a group of Afghan youth who are practicing inter-ethnic living and advocate for peace and nonviolence in Afghanistan. He recently shared with us that his presentation at TEDx Kabul is now available for online viewing. We hope that you can watch it.

The Center for Peacemaking has had an ongoing relationship with the Afghan Peace Volunteers for the past five years. This includes staff and alumni visiting their Borderfree Center in Kabul, publishing articles on the work of the peace volunteers in scholarly journals, and organizing skype calls between Marquette students and Afghan youth. Additionally, the Center for Peacemaking has developed an online course on nonviolence that the Afghan Peace Volunteers are completing.
