What constitutes patriotism when one s nation is at war? Is there theological justification for wars of self-defense or liberation? The author explores these questions to facilitate ongoing conversation in faith communities.

Moving beyond simplistic notions of good and evil in world affairs, he calls on peoples of faith to counter terror in all its forms through the creation of an axis of peace .
