Product Description

After meeting Jesuit activist and Nobel Peace Prize nominee John Dear on a peace pilgrimage, Patricia Normile was inspired by his tireless and courageous work for peace. Her great desire to spread John's message - the message of Jesus in the Gospel - led her to compile selections from Dear's impressive backlist of books and articles. In John Dear on Peace, Normile introduces the man, John Dear, and focuses on selections from his most relevant statements on living a nonviolent life. Each selection is followed by a brief reflection to engage us to act on Jesus' - and Dear's - call to peace and nonviolence.

An ideal resource for individuals, book clubs, Scripture study groups and faith-sharing communities, John Dear on Peace will provoke thoughtful discussion and prayer and surely help anyone seeking insights on the many weighty issues facing us today.

Publisher's Description

"John Dear on Peace is not intended to capture all that John’s writings teach. This is simply an introduction to an authentic gospel approach to peace, a way of active nonviolence that John lives and invites others to enter. Each reflection leads readers to the books from which the material is taken."—From the Introduction
