Uncompromisingly Ecumenical

Peter Kreeft is a succinct and insightful teacher and author. He is also prophetic. In 'Ecumenical Jihad' he binds and discusses the commonalities of faith and culture that exist between Muslims and Christians, Christians and Confucius, and Protestants and Catholics. He shows Christians how they build an affinity and understanding from other religions without compromising their own beliefs. His great desire and goal is not only to build an understanding but also an alliance. It is amazing that this book was written five years before 9/11. In his text, he looks to the devil and secularism as the enemy. To live through the moral squalor and decay of current Western Civilization is the ailment whose remedy is to embrace faith in all its consequences with people of other creeds. He cites historical evidence that parallels our own predicament and offers an interesting solution: sainthood and martyrdom. (I guess both are the antecedent to uncompromising faith.) While some may find his exegesis to be that of an intellectual "Henny Penny," one can't argue too strongly after the ramifications of 9/11 that he was right all along.

Uncompromising, unflinching, sometimes infuriating, Peter Kreeft brings it all back home with an alchemy that is well backed by articulate scholarship.
