"When the planes flew into the skyscrapers on 9/11, Dan Buttry was the co-pastor of the First Baptist Church in Dearborn, Michigan—home to the largest Arab Muslim population in North America. The next evening, Dan joined a group of Christian, Muslim, and Jewish religious leaders at a Dearborn mosque to ask what they might do together as religious communities. Thus began Dan’s journey as an interfaith peacemaker."

The Rev. Dr. Daniel Buttry is currently the global consultant for peace and justice with International Ministries of the American Baptist Churches, working on short-term peace projects around the world. He is also the author of several books, including Blessed are the Peacemakers and Interfaith Heroes 1 & 2. Learn more about his work at www.danbuttry.com.
