Our God Is Nonviolent: Witnesses in the Struggle for Peace and Justice

Our God Is Nonviolent offers a basic introduction to nonviolent resistance, and an overview of the nonviolence of Jesus and the ground-breaking work of Gandhi. Then, it outlines the shining examples of modern peacemakers, including Martin Luther King, Jr., Dorothy Day, Thomas Merton, Ita Ford, Jean Donovan, Jim Douglass, and Daniel Berrigan.

"John Dear introduces us to the inspiring legacy of nonviolent resistance and challenges each of us to examine our own hearts. Our God Is Nonviolent is a compelling testimony to faith and courage, an invitation to a journey. It is a fine companion for anyone considering--or choosing to walk--the way of nonviolence."
