When Muslim and Christian scholars met in 2001 in Samsun, Turkey for a symposium on inter-religious dialogue as a contribution to world peace, little did they know that September 11th was less than three months away. The events of that tragic day underline the urgency of such dialogue. As conflicts surfaced in Afghanistan, Palestine/Israel, Kashmir, Pakistan, Chechnya, and Iraq, the need to understand the underlying issues of the conflict became evident. The papers found in found in Muslim and Christian Reflections on Peace explore how people of diverse faiths can communicate, dispite discord, on issues of truth and justice. These Christian and Muslim reflections from the symposium in Turkey, which straddles East and West, are an attempt to explore some of these issues.
