Moving beyond Sectarianism by Joseph Liechty
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Moving Beyond Sectarianism is a major six-year research project of the Irish School of Ecumenics focusing on the role of Christian religion in sectarianism in Northern Ireland. It offers a new definition of the phenomenon, a detailed analysis of sectarian dynamics, and a series of models for helping people to transform such dynamics. In a refreshing way, this book avoids demonising the more violent, bigoted, and overt expressions of sectarianism, choosing instead to highlight the subtle, polite forms. This understated sectarianism seems comparatively innocuous, and yet it serves as essential underpinning for the ethos of antagonised division that allows the more blatant expressions to flourish. This book casts a sceptical eye on all claims of innocence, instead encouraging every person and group to take responsibility to help transform sectarianism. It presents a particular and timely challenge to Christian churches, showing how the work of moving beyond sectarianism provides an opportunity for churches to re-imagine their role and ministry in society.
