Ultimately, Sprinkle challenges the church to "walk in a manner worthy of our calling" and shape our lives on the example of Christ.

Book Summary:

The God of peace is never glorified by human violence. Thomas Merton 'The God of Peace', John Dear's classic theology of nonviolence, broke new ground when it was first published as a breakthrough toward a new understanding of scripture, theology, social concerns and churches issues--from the perspective of Gospel nonviolence, in the tradition of Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Dorothy Day. This ground-breaking study begins not just with the culture of violence, but the nonviolence of God, and the revolutionary nonviolence of Jesus. From the start, John Dear explores traditional areas of theology, such as Christology, Trinitarian Theology, anthropology, sin, redemption, theodicy, salvation, ecclesiology, eschatology, spirituality, liturgy, Catholic social teaching, the just war theory,, feminism, liberation theology and the consistent ethic of life. This text will help university and theology students pursuing the theology and spirituality of nonviolence, as well as ordinary Christians and activists interested in the crucial connection between war and violence, and God and nonviolence.

Book Summary:

If Christians follow the Prince of Peace, why do they often behave so violently? What can be done to transform the church so that it looks more like Jesus? Eric Seibert explores these questions in this important and timely study. He builds a biblical and practical case for living nonviolently in all areas of life and urges Christians to reexamine their most fundamental attitudes toward violence, warfare, and killing. Through true stories and careful analysis, Seibert demonstrates that it is possible to resolve conflict, correct injustice, and stop oppression without resorting to violence. Many nonviolent alternatives are discussed throughout the book, alternatives that can be used in a wide range of situations, from dealing with an unwanted intruder at home to removing a dictator from power. In a world filled with so much violence, hate, and fear, alternatives like these are desperately needed. This book offers hope that a better way is possible, one that has the potential to transform the church and change the world. So read on and join in!

Book Summary:

“Our world of war, poverty, corporate greed, racism, sexism, nuclear weapons, and catastrophic climate change demonstrates the total failure of violence,” says John Dear. The internationally known peace activist and Nobel Prize nominee has always offered a single answer: Jesus. Now he invites us to follow the nonviolent Jesus through the holy season of Lent, beginning with Jesus’ journey to Jerusalem and culminating in his resurrection and the new life of peace he brings to all. Deeply personal and uncompromisingly committed to peace, these prayerful reflections on Jesus’ life and death challenge the notion that support of violence at any level is compatible with a life in Christ. Drawing on the insights of Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and others, Dear shows us how we can practice gospel nonviolence, be apostles of peace, and change the world. Perfect for personal reflection or small group discussion, these meditations invite us to “participate in our own inner disarmament and cultivate our true nonviolent nature” as we follow the Good Shepherd, the Lamb of God. A timely, important, and inspiring book for our times.
