Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
"Some teachers are all theory and some are all practice. John Dear has the ability to be both. Some teachers are very orthodox and some open new ground. John Dear puts the two together knowing they are the same."
Sister Helen Prejean
"John Dear not only talks about Jesus but also lives Jesus — radical, loving, nonviolent Jesus. He prisms Jesus through his own life and brings us into the adventure."
Archbishop Desmond Tutu
"For evil to prevail requires only that good people sit on the sidelines and do nothing. Fr. John Dear is compelling all of us to stand up and take responsibility for the suffering of humanity so often caused through selfishness and greed."
J. Christoph Arnold
"Dear has the gift to capture the social gospel as Jesus and the apostles proclaimed it. His writing is in the tradition of Thomas Merton, Henri Nouwen, Jean Vanier, and Daniel Berrigan. "

Catholic Library World
