The Nonviolent Life:
A New Audiobook Box Set of 5 CDs read by the author, Fr. John Dear

tnvl“How can we become people of nonviolence and help the world become more nonviolent? What does it mean to be a person of active nonviolence? How can we help build a global grassroots movement of nonviolence to disarm the world, relieve unjust human suffering, make a more just society and protect creation and all creatures? What is a nonviolent life?”

These are the questions Fr. John Dear–Nobel Peace Prize nominee, long time peace activist and Pax Christi Ambassador of Peace–poses in this ground-breaking audiobook. John Dear suggests that the life of nonviolence requires three simultaneous attributes: being nonviolent toward ourselves; being nonviolent to all people, all creatures, and all creation; and joining the global grassroots movement of nonviolence.

In this audiobook, John Dear proposes a simple vision of nonviolence that everyone can aspire to. It will help everyone be healed of violence, and inspire us to transform our culture of violence into a new world of nonviolence!

In The Nonviolent Life, John Dear articulates a vision of the power, meaning and impact of the spiritually grounded nonviolent life—and invites us to put this into practice in both immediate and long-term ways. This is a clarion call, underscored by a declaration that recurs throughout the book: “the days of violence are over.”Dear’s phrasing is both daunting and deeply hopeful—because if the days of violence are over, that means the days of definitive nonviolence are finally beginning. -From the foreword by Ken Butigan, author of “Engage” and “From Violence to Wholeness”
