In a world of conflict in which religious differences play a significant role, reconciliation grows increasingly important. The Ministry of Reconciliation shows how with a spirituality of reconciliation we can create the spaces in which reconciliation can happen, and with human strategies, how the process of reconciliation can move forward.
For all those working to overcome the effect of violence – whether in communities and societies, or even in neighborhoods and families – The Ministry of Reconciliation offers a sure guide and inspiration to the way of divine shalom.
