Abstract:The papers in this volume were originally presented at a meeting of ESEAT (the Ecumenical Symposium of Eastern Africa Theologians) held from 10 to 14 March 2011 in Eldoret, Kenya. The papers responded to concerns within the Church about conflicts in the region, particularly in Kenya after the 2007 post-election violence, and in Uganda because of the suffering caused by the Lord's Resistance Army. Contributions: Conflict, justice and reconciliation: some realities, clarifications and procedures (Laurenti Magesa); Peacebuilding: from concept to strategy (Cletus N. Chukwu); Peacebuilding: lessons from the past (Adam K. arap Chepkwony); African indigenous approaches to peacebuilding, forgiveness and reconciliation: a perspective of the Basoga in Uganda (Helen Nkabala); Women, peacebuilding and reconciliation in East Africa: a case of Uganda (Theresa Tinkasiimire); Peacebuilding in East Africa: a Bible-based model (Daniel M. M'Mutungi); The Shalom Church in East Africa: challenges in peacebuilding and reconciliation (Peter Mageto); Peacebuilding and reconciliation: challenges faced by the Church in East Africa (Paddy Musana); Moral and religious implications for the Kenyan 2007 post-election violence: the role of the Church in national healing (Anne Nasimiyu Wasike); The need for a peace curriculum in Christian institutions and institutions of higher learning.
