From Publishers Weekly
Orbis adds to its Modern Spiritual Masters series with Mohandas Gandhi: Essential Writings, edited and introduced by John Dear. Dear, who writes that Gandhi's example "challenges us to become prophets and apostles of nonviolence," organizes the short selections thematically, arranging them around issues such as nonviolent resistance, the discipline of prayer and fasting, the search for God and the pursuit of truth. Dear has chosen accessible, passionate excerpts from Gandhi's writings, resulting in a valuable compendium for students and spiritual devotees.

I particularly enjoyed the introduction of the book, by John Dear, and his interesting comments on how much Gandhi personal saw writing as a chore, a duty (explaining why some of Gandhi's writings are somewhat dull); as well as the short letter Gandhi wrote to Adolf Hitler, asking him humbly to stop the holocaust.
As the book was very short, it only took a about a week to read, and I highlighted about 200 passages in that time. Well worth a read.
