Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, one of the most admired religious leaders of our time, provides an answer to those who claim that religion is intrinsically a cause of violence, in his new book, Not in God's Name. There are many conflicts around the world at present that claim to be in the name of God. However, Rabbi Sacks argues that a true understanding of religion will enable and inspire us to bring peace, not war--that far from leaving religion on the sidelines, we must put it at the heart of our peacemaking efforts.
