Loss and Hope brings together survivors, scholars and activists in a global inter-religious dialogue that both honours and transcends the particular political, geographical and historical context of trauma. More than merely inspirational, this collection gives hope to despair in a fully plural ensemble of critical theological voices. This is a massive contribution to conflict studies, contemporary public theology and to the wider understanding of the nature and range of human spiritual resistance. * Melissa Raphael, Professor of Jewish Theology, University of Gloucestershire *
The authors in this volume Loss and Hope are all reflective, "mature," persons in the sense that they have experienced serious, often devastating, loss of many different kinds. And yet-because-they held onto, or were grasped by, or mysteriously both, hope, they are the more human, and therefore "divine," however mysteriously understood. * Leonard Swidler, Professor of Catholic Thought and Interreligious Dialogue, Temple University *
In this bold, original, and timely collection of essays, Admirand has assembled leading international and interreligious voices of human rights. With this volume Admirand emerges as a new champion of the suffering by demonstrating the genuine service that academics can offer to the oppressed. He offers a beacon of hope to all who question the meaning of their suffering. * Rafael Luevano Associate Professor, Chapman University, Orange, California *
