This is a truly 21st century story that focuses on a new set of movements for social change that are bringing together young people across lines of faith for the work they can do on behalf of all of us. Readers will find programs to emulate, understandings that will sharpen their thinking and tremendous encouragement to add their thoughts to this emerging dialog. -- Ruth Messinger President, American Jewish World Service This collection of essays is...to be welcomed...Many of the principles that can be drawn out of them...have universal relevance and can be seen in other initiatives around the globe. -- Elizabeth J. Harris Journal Of Contemporary Religion With the publication of their breathtakingly comprehensive and creative profile of the emergent interfaith youth movement, Patrice Brodeur and Eboo Patel have both disclosed and helped to create an increasingly coherent social force that exemplifies what Brodeur calls "the global"-the unfolding of global dynamics in local communities. This volume, glistening with new ideas and energies, gathers one innovative voice after another-27 in all-to provide vivid testimony to the progress and potential of various initiatives that can eventually produce a truly transnational youth movement. The world will be the better for the empowerment of religiously alert, tolerant young people who welcome diversity and pluralism as an opportunity rather than a threat. -- R Scott Appleby, Institute for International Peace Studies, Professor of History, University of Notre DameVom Verlag:
Violence committed by religious young people has become a regular feature of our daily news reports. What we hear less about are the growing numbers of religious young people from all faith backgrounds who are committed to interfaith understanding and cooperation. Building the Interfaith Youth Movement is the first book to describe this important phenomenon. Contributions include concrete descriptions of various interfaith youth projects across the country-from an arts-program in the South Bronx to a research program at Harvard University to a national organization called the Interfaith Youth Core based in Chicago-written by the founders and leaders of those initiatives. Additional chapters articulate the theory and methodology of this important new movement. This book is a must-read for college chaplains, religious leaders who work with youth, and students and scholars of contemporary religion.
