It Is Possible: Subverting Hatred and Greed

Knitter, Paul

Paul Knitter is the Paul Tillich Professor of Theology, World Religions, and Culture at Union Theological Seminary in New York City. The Seminary's vision for the Tillich Chair—to "promote a dialogue of religious communities that will both enrich the religions and promote the well-being of the people and planet"—has guided every phase of his long and distinguished career, from his role as Professor of Theology at Xavier University, Cincinnati, to the authorship of his groundbreaking 1985 book No Other Name?, to his participation in numerous international, interreligious peace organizations. Knitter is also co-general editor with William R. Burroughs of the Orbis Books Faith Meets Faith series on interreligious dialogue, which includes the BRC titles Subverting Hatred: the Challenge of Nonviolence in Religious Traditions and Subverting Greed: Religious Perspectives on the Global Economy. He co-edited the latter with Chandra Muzaffar. The BRC's Mitch Bogen spoke with Professor Knitter early this year about his hopes for these books as educational tools in the quest for global peace and justice.
