On this week’s Interfaith Voices:

Jimmy Carter’s ‘Call to Action’ on Women

Since Jimmy Carter left the White House in 1981, he has founded the Carter Center and traveled to 145 countries, establishing humanitarian projects in more than half of them. And he’s written more than 2 dozen books–the latest of which focuses on the plight of women and girls around the world. He says that much of the prejudice women face can be traced to interpretations of scripture that elevate men as superior.

Christian-Muslim Violence in Nigeria

At least 3,600 civilians have been killed in Nigeria since 2009, when the Islamist militant group Boko Haram began a rebellion against that country’s government. It’s the latest in a long history of tension between Nigeria’s Muslim North and Christian South. But as is true of many other places, Nigeria’s violence has deeper roots than just theological differences.

Imam Ashafa: Working With Former Enemies For Peace

As leaders of street militias in war-torn Nigeria, Pastor James Wuye and Imam Muhammed Ashafa used to try to kill each other. Now true friends, they work together to heal the religious divide between Christians and Muslims in Nigeria.
