Summary
"Combining a rich selection of case materials spanning nine countries, this book enlarges the literature in several important ways. It draws a legitimate connection between spirituality and pragmatic international peacebuilding. It contributes to the growing but still limited case literature on religiously motivated peacebuilding, and, in so doing, examines the theological, moral, and cultural underpinnings of Mennonite peacebuilding practice. Finally, in a literature that is dominated by top-down, diplomatic, and political-level mediation, this volume provides graphic evidence of peacebuilding at the grassroots and middle levels of society, a rapidly growing arena in which the Mennonites have been vitally active." "From the Ground Up offers original contributions from Mennonite peacebuilders as well as from non-Mennonite scholars of anthropology, religion, and conflict resolution. It is essential reading for practitioners and scholars working in all sectors of conflict resolution and peacebuilding."--BOOK JACKET
