Put Down Your Sword

Full Product Description

Few books on the market share not only a vision of Jesusí nonviolence but also ways of actually living out that same vision today. Who better to write such a work than Father John Dear, an internationally known peacemaker?

Put Down Your Sword invites us into Jesusí way of nonviolence as presented by the Gospels. Arguing that all Christians must follow Christís example in the ways of peace, Dear outlines the many actions he himself has taken following the path of nonviolence, modeling his own vision of peace in this turbulent world.

First sharing his convictions and insights about the nonviolence of Jesus, the Beatitudes, the nature of God, and the mystery of the resurrection, Dear goes on to relate stories from the various protests in which he has been involved. Journal entries from missions to India and Colombia offer a poignant backdrop for his impassioned argument. Dear also profiles the peacemakers he finds most inspiring, from Martin Luther King Jr. to Henri Nouwen to Joan Baez. Finally, he reflects on care for the earth, the teachings of Thomas Merton, and the vision of a new world without war, poverty, or violence.

Put Down Your Sword by John Dear was published by Eerdmans Publishing Company in August 2008 and is our 43468th best seller. The ISBN for Put Down Your Sword is 9780802863577.
