Suddenly, on September 11, 2001, many of our comfortable assumptions about our world, our faith, and ourselves came crashing down with towers of the World. Trade Center. In the wake of that disaster, we are all re-examining values we once took for granted. In the Aftermath is a collection of reflections from well-known writers and church leaders who explore the political, economic, social and religious implications of our responses to the events of September 11th, to see what these can and are teaching us about our world, our faith, and ourselves.
