23 of 23 people found the following review helpful By Mikhail Ali on September 18, 2004
Format: Paperback
This volume is one of the most elegant books I have read - it should be read by everyone with some sense of spirituality, or for anyone that has any inclination to question the rationale of a Loving Spirit in a world racked with insecurity and hate.
The reading can be done in less than 45 minutes - although the arguments that he makes are hardly complicated, the examples he conveys are concise, but still inspiring. The pinnacle of why violence and unhappiness occur are precisely examined for the lay audience, without any deep theological or technical details.
I had forgotten how timeless the prayer of Francis of Assisi was - it is beautiful writings like this and its inclusion by Jean Vanier that convince you of the infinitude of the written word, and its Higher purpose. What makes this work so unique is its accessibility, consistent in spirit with the idea of encouraging humility and compassion, and motivating the reader to remove oneself of any sanctimony or arrogance by addressing the search within.
Humanity can only understand the violence in these dark times by redefining that Peace means more than shows of courtesy and tolerance, but something within each one of us that needs some Divine help, especially if we are sincere about making peace, and not just abhorring violence.
