Solomon's book is timely in view of the rise of violence of the present age of sectarian violence. What is particularly welcome in this book is Solomon's interaction with peace imperatives in some of the religious traditions in the Asian context including Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Taoism, Confucianism, and Tribal religions. He also exhorts readers to follow the example of Jesus in embracing reconciliation, justice and peace.
Well written, informative and thought provoking, Solomon's book is highly recommended for pastors, Christians, and all those who are committed in pursuing non-violence in a violent world.
Solomon's previous publications include Folk Hinduism (Manila: ATESEA, 2000) and Symbols and the Church (Petaling Jaya: Council of Churches in Malaysia, 2005).
