First published twenty years ago as an Archbishop of Canterbury's Lent book and now revised and updated, this is a wide ranging study of the causes, effects and proper Christian response to the violence that pervades every area of daily life - from popular entertainment, to street crime, to international relations.
With his customary realism and humanity, Rowan Williams explores the inner fears and fantasies that give rise to violent attitudes and behaviour. He explores the meaning of Christ's saying, 'Blessed are the peacemakers' and signals the contribution that faith can make towards peacemaking in today's world.
