Religion, particularly in the Palestinian context, has been portrayed as a hindrance to peace and not as a methodology for liberation. The papers from the 2005 conference are compiled here with additional contributions from the editors. The content discusses the role religion plays in the lives of peoples’ struggling for justice, looking at other liberation struggles as well as the Palestinian cause.
