Children of Abraham Institute

The Children of Abraham Institute (CHAI) focuses on finding ways through which religion can become a source of peace and harmony rather than violence and conflict. Its threefold purpose is to facilitate cooperative scholarship among Christian, Muslim, and Jewish scholars; to help religious leaders identify areas of common understanding that can contribute to peacebuilding in their home communities; and to establish study centers in existing educational institutions. CHAI serves as the practical application arm of the Society for Scriptural Reasoning, which is dedicated to developing shared methods of scriptural interpretation. Members also contribute to the electronic Journal of Scriptural Reasoning; a similar journal highlights the work of undergraduate and graduate students. Current CHAI centers include St. Ethelburga's Centre for Reconciliation and Peace, the Cambridge Inter-faith Programme, and student study groups at Cambridge University, the University of Virginia, and Eastern Mennonite University.
