Peace and the Limits of War: Transcending the Classical Conception of Jihad. Louay M. Safi. International Institute of Islamic Thought, 2001.
Return: Daily Inspiration for the Days of Awe. Erica Brown. Koren, 2012. (For more on Return, see Teshuva in a Half an Inch of Water.)
Other items in the bag, FWIW, include (top left to bottom right, more or less):
- travel mug (Port City Java), hard-boiled egg, emergency protein bars and empty Starbucks bags, good for free cups of coffee;

One thought on “Traveling Peace Library”
What a coincidence that you have PCJ coffee mug…I just happened to stumble on your photo on the whatsinyourbag.com site. I’m from Wilmington (THE Port City!) and love the place. I visited DC in January and made sure to venture to the PCJ on Capitol Hill…it was strange (but awesome!) to visit my home coffee shop outside of NC! Cheers :)
