This contemplation of the eleventh chapter of the late Gospel of John begins, -The Gospels depict Jesus engaged in a mighty struggle against death. He came, he said, to give sight to the blind, freedom to the captive, liberation to the oppressed, good news to the poor - in each case calling people to the fullness of life and to victory over the powers of death and deadness. His was a life of boundless compassion, creative nonviolence, and universal love. As we know, in his struggle against the deathly empire of his time, he gave up his own life. Yet we also know that he was raised . . .) In this world of death and woe, he left us the promise that life yet holds a slight edge over death. There is a name for this triumph of life through loving nonviolence. We call it "resurrection."

We each need read this profound meditation upon our Faith in Life and Peace and Love and Nonviolence as our Advent reading this year, and so come forth to live in truth, integrally, the Gospel we profess, of nonviolence, of Life.

Those readers who have not seen the many other works by the great and Reverend Father John Dear SJ may find within this volume of about 177 pages may discover herein the culmination of his decades of dedicated ministry to our Church, practicing peace through direct nonviolent action courageously, in the footsteps of his brother Jesuit priest, the Reverend Father Daniel Berrigan, of the Catonsville Nine, author most recently of The Kings and Their Gods: The Pathology of Power and of many other works of exegesis on the Old Testament in the light of our present condition, spiritual and political, as well as works of poetry.

"The Kingdom of God is life...We as a people have made social contract with death." I love Rev. John Dear's emphasis on Jesus non-violence, trying to wake us up from from our failure to notice or question the institutionalized violence in our society. I gave this fewer stars because, unlike Dear's previous books, this one appears to be unedited and to have no proofreader. Perhaps this is just the kindle edition, but it is full of words run together, run-on sentences, ideas dropped, etc. These errors make the book much more difficult to read.

Format: Paperback
In his exegetical analysis of John 11, the story of Lazarus, Fr. John Dear leads the reader through a journey of non-violent confrontation - confrontation between the forces of violence and death that permeate our society and the forces of nonviolence and resurrection. His analysis is both surprising and shocking. He takes a pivotal story and makes it universally relevant to all who struggle against the forces that lead us to death and destruction. Dear calls us to follow Jesus' commands to role back the stone, come forth, and unwrap. This theology is both liberating and demanding. It changes the way that I read this passage in John and the way that I understand and relate to Jesus. Hopefully it will do the same for you.

This book was very interesting. It will be the text for a workshop I'm taking this summer. I am excited about discussing this book in a group setting.

If you can overlook Fr Dear's leftist agenda and stick to the Christian message, it's excellent at pointing out the parallels beteen the culture of death of first century Roman-occupied Palestine and our modern culture if death with its assault on the unborn and the vulnerable and how resurection is more than a future proposition.
