HENRI NOUWEN'S MOST PROPHETIC BOOK, IN PAPERBACK

This timely book offers a three-fold path for Christians to embrace Jesus' ethic of peacemaking.  First: to begin with a life of prayer, a movement from "the dwelling place" of fear into the house of God.  Next, to "resist the powers of death"--including our everyday selfishness.  Finally, to celebrate life and to build communities in which love, forgiveness, and compassion bind us in solidarity with a wounded world.

Henri Nouwen, a Dutch-born priest, was pastor of the L'Arche Daybreak community in Toronto, Canada.  His many best-selling books include Adam: God's Beloved, and Jesus: A Gospel.
