Associating faith traditions with violence by perpetrators and their critics is one of the key issues confronting the world today.

Almost weekly, an event takes place around the world that sends social media into frenzy, with the result being further differentiation between religious traditions, and estrangement of religious adherents who are placed under increasing scrutiny and suspicion.

This conference seeks to engage this pressing social issue.

By engaging with the sacred texts and traditions of the great religions of the world, it is hoped that strategies may emerge that demonstrate that religion is not the problem, but indeed has much to contribute to the solution of the current state of affairs.

The conference will feature two key speakers: Professor Zeki Saritoprak (John Carroll University) and Professor Daniel Smith-Christopher (Loyola Marymount University).

Bios of our two key note speakers:

Both are highly credentialed in regards to inter-faith dialogue and commitments to peace.

The conference will also feature panel sessions, workshops, and papers from other contributors.

Come for one day or all three – but don’t miss out on this innovative conference.

  1. Dear Conference Organisers
    Can you please tell me when the panel discussion of David Neville’s book will be on, and whether it is possible to come along simply for that session?

    Thank you

  2. The Conference was wonderful. Thanks for everything and please let me know if there is another opportunity like this one to meet people from other faiths than the Christianity. I appreciate all your efforts and please send me the emails of other participants to be in contact with them, and please send my email for them if they ask for.
    Blessings and joy in Christ
