His "three steps to making an enemy" is powerful because we all do it, knowingly or unknowingly. Step 1 is Separate yourself from the person, see only the differences and not the commonalities. 2. See yourself as superior, not like the other person. 3. Dehumanize the other person, and deprive them of the qualities that make them human. That's an Rx for the Nazi's extermination of the Jews, POW camps and 100 of other historic events. And it's our action every time we demonize a mass murderer or anyone else we don't like.
This is a small book, but do not let that lure you into thinking it won't challenge your thinking. We did a sermon series on Peace at our Presbyterian church and people admitted that they were challenged by the call to be peacemakers when everyone's natural reaction to things done to them is to hate or be angry. That is all too easy. And Lederbach, who has dedicated his life to the promotion of peace, knows what he is talking about. Heck, he helped with peace talks with the Sandanistas in Nicaragua and lived to tell about it!
arises in human relationships. Lederach's treatment of biblical texts shows good understanding. Interested in
being a better peacemaker, or just in being a better person? This book is for you.
