148 pages. Since September 11 2001, the world has been awash with fear and anger and intolerance. UNIYA, the Jesuit Social Justice Center, seeks to make a positive contribution to public debate within this climate through its Jesuit Lenten Seminars. This book contains the papers given by the principle speakers in 2003, Muslims and Christians - Where do we all stand?, and 2004, "A Fair Go in the Age of Terror." Contributions from some of the 2004 panel members are also included. These papers invite us, as individuals and as a nation, to expand our thinking. There is a shared recognition that terrorism cannot be destroyed by armaments and force. The more we resort to heavy-handedness in dealing with social and cultural grievances, the more we contribute to an 'artificial clash of civilisations', and the more we compromise our own rights and identity. All contributors to this book recognise that genuine and disciplined dialogue is one way forward. There is an implicit and explicit hope that we refrain from the discourse of fear, blame and reprisal, and recover the language of dialogue.
