500 Book Reviews / International Journal of Public Theology 5 (2011) 489–507 Sebastian C. H. Kim, Pauline Kollontai and Greg Hoyland, eds, Peace and Reconcilia- tion: In Search of Shared Identity (Aldershot: Ashgate, 2008), pp. vii + 205, £55.00, ISBN 978-0-7546-6461-1 (hbk). Peace and Reconciliation: In Search of Shared Identity is the culmination of the August 2006 International Conference on Peace and Reconciliation at York St John Univer- sity, UK. This volume of collected papers is indeed a search, a search to understand one of the most confounding tasks of our time: what it takes to build peace and restore relationships that have been divided by conﬂict. This volume is not a primer on reconciliation; it enters the conversation in the midst of debates on meaning and method, which reconciliation as a ﬁeld is still explor- ing. As a compilation, the terms and logic of the volume are not as cohesive as they would be in a single authored volume, but as a whole the book rests on two notions: ﬁrst, that conﬂict, and any eﬀort to intervene in conﬂict, must take identity into account; and secondly, that religion, Christianity in particular, prepares communities to do so.
