Abstract:

Religious thinker and former nun Karen Armstrong has written more than 20 books on faith and the major religions, studying what Islam, Judaism, and Christianity have in common and how our faiths shaped world history and drive current events. Armstrong's 2008 TED Prize wish asks us to help her assemble the Charter for Compassion, a document around which religious leaders can work together for peace. In the fall of 2008, the first draft was written by the world via a sharing website and in February of 2009 the words of the world were collected and given to the Council of Conscience, a gathering of religious leaders and thinkers. The Charter was launched in November 2009.
