This is a moving call to examine nonviolent resistance and should be read by Christian leaders, educators, and opinion makers. It is a book destined to leave an impact on the readers of this generation and generations to come. -- Richard R. Blake * Reader Views *
We desperately need a spirituality to lead us beyond the warlike mind, and only an authentic spirituality will do the job. Religion, up to now, has largely failed. Fr. Lawrence Hart offers you a very readable but believable spirituality of peacemaking. This will console your heart and challenge your mind at the same time. -- Richard Rohr, OFM, author, ecumencial teacher, and founder, Center for Action and Contemplation * Center for Action and Contemplation *
Of all the books I have read on nonviolence and on Christian spirituality, I don't know of any that penetrates so deeply and clearly to the heart of both. This would be enough for any one book, but then Hart goes a step further: He prophetically critiques U.S. empire and exposes the violence that lies behind this country's many justifications for war. This is a book for anyone who wishes to love as Jesus loved and is not afraid to contemplate the political implications of that kind of love. -- Sheri Hostetler, pastor of First Mennonite Church of San Francisco
