ABOUT THIS BOOK:
Advancing Nonviolence and Just Peace is a biblical, theological, ethical, pastoral and strategic resource for anyone seeking to understand or expand Catholic thinking on nonviolence. It answers commonly asked questions about active nonviolence and Catholic social teaching, including:
Does nonviolence work to resolve conflict?
What did Jesus and the Bible say about nonviolence?
What has the Church taught about nonviolence?
Is nonviolence the same as pacifism? How are they different?
Advancing Nonviolence and Just Peace explores the foundations of Catholic thinking about nonviolence. It includes reviews of papal statements and church documents, a survey of the biblical teaching from the Hebrew Bible and Christian scriptures, a review of contemporary theological research on nonviolence, and dozens of recommendations for further discernment on how the Church might live into its Gospel nonviolence mandate.
This is an essential resource for moving forward the dialogue on how the Church can lead, teach and respond to conflict in the world. Consider ordering an extra to share with your bishop or other church leaders.(Publisher). Very good. Item #8857
