Most widely held works by Bojan Žalec
Reconciliation : the way of healing and growth( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book considers reconciliation from various points of view: biblical foundations of reconciliation, philosophical aspects, Girardian and Bonhoefferian reflections on reconciliation, intellectual and (post)totalitarian history, psychotherapeutic approaches . The authors consider reconciliation also in very concrete (historical) contexts (Hungary, Russia, Slovenia, Islam and Christianity). Despite some disagreements, their common message is clear: human history and present times are covered with blood, suffering (of innocent victims) and negative emotions. Hence the only acceptable way is cultivation of the culture of reconciliation

Religion, violence, and ideology : reflections on the challenges of postmodern world( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The question about the role of religion as a factor of overcoming violence and of fostering intercultural dialogue is among the key challenges of the postmodern world. The contributions in the book specifically focus on the interplay between the phenomena of religion, ideology, and violence. The topics addressed include the question of origins of violence in secular modernity, radical Islamism and totalitarianism, the relationship between faith, humility and theological vision of peace, the relationship between metaphysics and violence, anthropology of myth and violence, gender-based violence, democracy, human rights, cosmopolitan justice and religion, and religious communities as agents of hospitality. --Book cover
Truth and compassion : lessons from the past and premonitions of the future( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book offers an integral and inter-disciplinary view on truth and compassion, their mutual connectedness, the meaning of their cultivation, and the devastating consequences of their neglect and destruction. The authors analyse their various forms, their origins, and concrete ways and attempts of their repression. The book is marked by the attention to the topic of truth and compassion under communism. But this is only one of its segments. As a whole it ranges from basic theological and philosophical analysis to concrete historiographic treatments of particular cases. The central message is that speaking about grievances, communication, dialogue, empathy, and solidarity are necessary for living in truth and compassion" -- From the publisher
