John Dear combines scriptural wisdom with practical advice from peacemakers like Gandhi (who regularly read the Beatitudes), Thomas Merton, Dorothy Day, and many more. These stirring meditations are a call to action - to take up the Beatitudes as a daily handbook. Set against vivid descriptions of peace efforts in places like Afghanistan, Israel, Los Alamos and New Mexico, he affirms that the God of peace is alive and at work among us, calling us into the fullness of lasting peace.
