Introduction

The events of September 11, 2001 are etched in the collective consciousness of our generation and ineffaceable from modern memory. They also brought to the fore the issue of the role of religion in the present day world. A global congress on World’s religious After September 11 was held in Montreal from 11-15 September 2006 to explore this issue further and to examine whether religious could also be a force for good, notwithstanding he current opprobrium which attached to it. A total of 225 speakers participated in over 8 workshops, 18 plenary sessions, 47 panels and 236 individual presentations over the five days of this congress, which attracted 2025 participants from 84 countries.

I hope the readers will welcome the sampling of material presented at this congress, now offered through the medium of this volume. It also includes the text of the universal Declaration of human rights, which was released at this congress for discussion in the academic and faith communities.

Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
