Endorsements & Reviews-

"This work, the culmination of a remarkable lifetime of peacemaking, is a sustained argument for the radical centrality of Jesus' teaching on violence and forgiveness. It will challenge and instruct; it will also inspire and sustain."

Patrick Jordan, Managing Editor, 'Commonweal'


"The best, clearest, and most comprehensive summary of the fundamental principles behind making war and waging peace. I recommend highly 'Peace Be With You' as must reading for all who are already committed or conscientiously exploring a resolution to walk in the footsteps of the nonviolent Jesus."

Bishop Walter F. Sullivan, President, Pax Christi USA


"This pioneering work places the teachings of Jesus on peace in historical context and traces its acceptance and rejection to our own day. Justified warfare is challenged by nonviolence, both exemplified in accounts and personal experiences of the twentieth century."

Mary Evelyn Jegen, SND


"A monumental work that gets right to the heart of today's global crisis."

John Dear, S.J., Executive Director, Fellowship of Reconciliation


"[This] comprehensive, passionate book will enable young - and not so young - people to understand and treasure the peace-making tradition handed on to them."

Michael W. Hovey, Coordinator, Peace and Justice Education, Iona College
