We have arrived at a critical juncture in the postwar order that has prevailed in Europe since 1945. Confronting Religious Violence begins with the premise that violence committed in God's name is always an act of desecration.

*Guy Stroumsa on open religion and its enemies
*David Sloan Wilson on evolutionary biology and religious violence
*Michael Welker on countering hate-speech
