      Since discussion of war and peace is -- even today -- so tinged with religion, it may as well be based on authentic religion. Francis represents what it means to be an authentic Christian.   But whatever we call it, War and Peace is an astonishing work—a book that incorporates historical characters, vivid battle scenes, several love stories, shrewd glimpses of everyday life, an examination of Western ideas and the Russian soul, and a disquisition on the nature of history itself, among other things. It is at once a book of ideas /5().

    2 berkley center for religion, peace & world affairs at georgetown university case study th northern ireland This case study examines the complex and multifaceted role of religion in the conflict in Northern Ireland between Catholic nationalists and Protestant. Some commentators state that Islam is a religion of peace and moderation, "which is tolerant and encourages inter-religious dialogue for the benefit of humanity:" 1 For example: The President of the United States from to , George W. Bush, emphasized that " Islam is Peace " .

    In the popular mind, to discuss religion in the context of international affairs automatically raises the specter of religious-based conflict. The many other dimensions and impacts of religion tend to be downplayed or even neglected entirely. The contribution that religion can make to peacemaking--as the flip side of religious conflict--is only beginning to be explored and explicated.   Founders v. Bush is a comparison in quotations of the policies and politics of the Founding Fathers and those of George W. Bush; a sourced compilation in their own words on issues of War & Peace, Religion & Liberty, Taxes & Debt, Honesty & Responsibility a tragicomic juxtaposition of mind-numbing NewSpeak and timeless eloquence.
