Religion, Power, and Politics: An Exchange
In our Summer 2016 issue, Rabbi Shlomo Riskin reviewed Not in God’s Name: Confronting Religious Violence by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks. Rabbi Riskin’s original article can be found here.

Rabbi Riskin’s rejoinder to Rabbi Sacks, also appearing in the Fall 2016 issue, can be found here.
