Format: Paperback
"Put down your sword." So said Jesus to his apostle in the Garden of Gethsemane. How many among our Christian leaders today cite this profound peace message of Jesus as the "apostles" of perennial war today do just the opposite? In this work the author reminds us just who the true Prince of Peace is, always referring to Jesus as "the nonviolent Jesus." It's worth a read by those of us deeply troubled by the current spread of war and violence everywhere. It reminds us also that the strength, courage, and faith that were Gandhi's are alive and well in great souls everywhere today, including that of this great priest/author/activist, John Dear, S. J.

Everyone who can read would do well to read this book. John Dear is right on track with non-violence as the way to peace, imitating the peace makers who have gone before us to show us the way!

I look forward to reading this. I found listening to the author very invigorating. I trust I will learn more about helping create a non-violent world.
