The book is divided into three sections. In part one, nine religious traditions such as Judaism, Eastern Orthodoxy, Roman Catholicism, Protestantism, Shi'a Islam, Sunni Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism and Buddhism were reviewed. In these chapters there is the point that the term 'security' is ambiguous and could not fall in line with religious strategy. Other discussions identify efforts of the Catholic Church in peace missions as it assists security worldwide. The passage shows that Protestantism's diversity and dynamism in relationship to security is difficult to assess because the religious tradition so heavily influenced the development of the contemporary world order. A line of demarcation can be seen here. A sharp difference in faith practices between Shi'a Islam and the adherents of Sunni Islam in regard to terrorist action is also identified.
