Mohandas Gandhi: Essential Writings

"A timely book that will go a long way in understanding Gandhi's approach to nonviolence. A must read for all peacemakers."

-- Arun Gandhi

"John Dear, who writes that Gandhi's example challenges us to become prophets and apostles of nonviolence, organizes the short sections 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."

-- Publishers Weekly

"John Dear has done a masterful job as editor of 'Mohandas Gandhi.' Perhaps Gandhi's greatest legacy for Christians is that he encourages us to be more authentic followers of Christ. Those who seek to be more truly Christian will not go wrong reading and digesting this book."

-- Western Catholic Reporter (Canada)
