1.Growing Decline in World Peace
We started our long journey in these six Books with an expression of concern over the growing decline in world peace.Our Mission throughout our Six Books had therefore focused on our views on how the state of World Peace can be advanced.
2. Enhancing unity between Christianity and Secularity.
We expressed at the beginning of our first Book that one major source of the growing decline in world peace is the on-going wars and crises between the Religious and Secular worlds of today. This source of global crises had been acknowledged in a recent conference of global Religious Leaders held in Assisi at the invitation of Pope Benedict XVI. The Conference participants resolved unanimously to address this source of crises in world peace.
Global Secular Leaders had also expressed much concern on the growing decline in world peace. They did so again at the last meeting of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
3.Our Mission to contributetoPopeBenedict XVI’s New Evangelization
In our view, the recent launching of the New Evangelization by Pope Benedict XVI reflected in part the resolution of Religious Leaders in the Assisi Conference to find ways of addressing the growing decline in world peace due partly to Religious conflicts with Secularity across the world.
The Pope called on all Lay members of the Catholic Church and Christians in general to contribute to the success of the Pope’sNew Evangelization-PCNE.
As we expressed throughout our six books, our missionin these Books is to respond to the call by Pope Benedict XVI.
4. Military and Secular Perspectives on the Religious and SecularPeace
We stated clearly from the start, that our contribution would reflect on the militaryand secular aspects of the growing conflicts between Christianity and Secularity, using the global experience in both sectors by our Author throughout his career.We had to take these perspectives because we must identify the source, leadership and strategies in the wars and conflicts between the Religious and Secular worlds . Unless we know the leaders in the conflicts and their missions we cannot achieve any progress in resolving these wars and crises and enhance the level of world peace.
