Overview

Does religious extremism represent an inevitable consequence of firmly held beliefs in life-and-death situations? Is there a way out?

Gathering ethicists and scholars from the three major and often conflicting monotheistic traditions, each was asked to correlate a religious tradition's sacred texts and tradition with the contemporary world's pluralism and claims about the inalienable sanctity and dignity of human life. The result is that the reader sees "human life before God" in new and profound ways.
