      Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11:
      A Call to Reflection and Action
      David Ray Griffin

      Westminster John Knox Press, 2006



      "Professor David Ray Griffin has a well-deserved reputation for the thoroughness
      of his research. All Americans who love their country enough to dig into the
      facts of these critical times will be well rewarded by examining his books. 9/11
      truth is a very important issue---one with the power to bring lasting change to
      our country."--The Reverend William Sloane Coffin Jr, author of Credo: Letters
      to a Young Doubter and A Passion for the Possible: A Message to U.S. Churches



      "If you are open to recognizing that the United States behaves much as other
      great powers have behaved, but you get your information through standard
      American channels, I dare you to expose yourself to the facts Griffin
      summarizes, facts that have been suppressed by our newspapers and magazines. If
      you are one who wants to be a disciple of Jesus, you will have some hard
      thinking to do about what American Christians are called to be and to do at this
      historical moment."
      --John B. Cobb Jr, co-author of The American Empire and the Commonwealth of God


      "Are we brave enough to read this nerve-wracking book, one of the most important
      theological texts of our time? Rooted in the longstanding belief that Christians
      share responsibility for shaping a more justice-loving world, Griffin makes a
      strong case that the real "conspiracy theory" about 9/11 is the Bush
      Administration's silly notion that nineteen young Arab men could have pulled it
      off. Griffin helps us wrestle with questions that are almost too much to bear,
      yet which may empower us, if we dare, to build a more truthful and, over time,
      more deeply moral nation and world."---The Reverend Carter Heyward, Robbins
      Professor of Theology Emerita, Episcopal Divinity School, Cambridge,
      Massachusetts, and author of Saving Jesus from Those Who Are Right and God in
      the Balance: Christian Spirituality in Times of Terror


      "A gripping account of precedents for the current global empire, from the Rome
      of Jesus to twentieth-century 'false-flag' operations. . . . His wake-up call to
      U.S. Christians will be evaded at our peril."--Catherine Keller, Professor of
      Theology, Drew University, and author of God and Power.


      "In two earlier books, David Ray Griffin established himself as one of the
      foremost researchers into 9/11. This book is of immensely greater scope and
      importance. . . . It sees the contemporary world clearly and synoptically in an
      informed Christian perspective, so that it makes questions of theodicy and the
      roots of evil as contemporary as the events of 9/11. Even though it makes some
      claims and arguments I disagree with, I consider this one of the most
      significant and original books I have ever read."--Peter Dale Scott, author of
      Drugs, Oil, and War: The United States in Afghanistan, Colombia, and Indochina


      "WARNING: If, like most Americans calling themselves Christian, you prefer the
      comfort of acquiescing in the official version of 9/11 and the imperial wars it
      facilitated, DROP THIS BOOK NOW. But if you are open to the grace of honest
      inquiry and the risk of following the historical Jesus in confronting the evils
      of empire, this rigorously argued book is a MUST READ."---Ray McGovern, CIA
      veteran analyst now with Tell the Word, a project of the ecumenical Church of
      the Saviour, Washington, D.C.


      "David Griffin has previously made the case for the Bush administration's
      complicity in 9/11 and the cover-up of this evidence by the 9/11 Commission.
      Here, in this important book, he puts these shocking realities in the context of
      Christian theology and the challenge to the churches. In a profound exploration
      of the nature and history of the demonic, Griffin suggests that American empire
      is a culmination of human demonic alienation from God."--Rosemary Radford
      Ruether, emeritus scholar, Claremont Graduate University and Claremont School of
      Theology


      "Do American Christians want the United States to act like the New Rome,
      invading other countries to impose its imperial rule and its control of other
      peoples' resources? That, however, is just what the US is doing, increasingly so
      since 9/11, explains David Griffin. In this gripping summary of evidence for the
      truth behind 9/11 and the 9/11 Commission report, Griffin makes a compelling
      case that the imperial practices of the American government have become a
      destructive force in the world. And he clarifies the biblical and theological
      basis for Christians to challenge the resurgent American imperialism that often
      claims divine blessing on its destructive actions."--Richard A. Horsley,
      Distinguished Professor of Liberal Arts and the Study of Religion, University of
      Massachusetts, and author of Jesus and Empire: The Kingdom of God and the New
      World Disorder


      "Compelling reading. Here is a remarkably thorough presentation of facts
      regarding 9/11 events. Professor Griffin sets the events of 9/11 in a
      historical, religious, and philosophical context that is most enlightening.
      Although this context is also somewhat chilling, he holds out hope in his
      discussion of where we can go from here. I most highly recommend this
      book!"---Steven E. Jones, Professor of Physics, Brigham Young University
