How are the worlds religions responding to terrorism conducted in Gods name? Part adventure story, part intriguing memoir, A Bishops Quest is the chronicle of one mans work among many toward a productive vision of inter-religious cooperation and active response to religicide - slaughter conducted in Gods name. A Bishops Quest proposes several concepts to help make sense of religions role in present-day conflict and offers balance to the one-sided argument that, at the heart of these conflicts, religion is to blame. Bishop Swings story offers a vivid account of working at the very top of the worlds religious orders to build what became a bottom-up organizational model. His quest, including meetings with such religious figures as Pope John Paul II, Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio (the current Pope Francis I), Mother Theresa, the Dalai Lama, the Shankaracharya of Kanchipuram, the Coptic Pope Shenouda III, and others, is a story of discovery, challenge, frustration, institutional entropy, and finally, breakthrough. Topics covered in A Bishops Quest include religiously-based conflict, both historical and current; current world leaders (religious and otherwise) seeking to resolve current conflict issues; popular efforts to improve global accord through focused cooperation; the value of religious freedom and interfaith education; the inclusive, decentralized and self-organizing enterprise that is achieving strong interfaith collaborations around the world
