365 Extraordinary People Who Changed the World
Imprint: Cascade Books
"Blessed Peacemakers is quite astonishing in its breadth and depth, examining 365 noble souls who devoted large parts of their lives to peacemaking and without whom the world would be a much poorer place."
--Helen Caldicott, Founding President of Physicians for Social Responsibility
"This inspiring and wonderful book gives a concise account of the core ideas, passions, and acts of the world's peacemakers over the last twenty-five hundred years. . . . These engaging essays deserve a read by anyone committed to making our world a more just and peaceful place."
--Donald B. Kraybill, Distinguished Professor at Elizabethtown College
"One excellent way to start the day is to read just one page of Blessed Peacemakers--read it in silence to yourself if you eat breakfast alone; read it aloud if there's more than one at the table. In some cases, you will already be aware of the person whose story is assigned to the day, in many cases not. In every case, you are in for encouragement and inspiration."
--Jim Forest, International Secretary of the Orthodox Peace Fellowship
"Walters and Jarrell provide exemplars who encourage this world toward longevity and high quality of life. Like it or not, we need these exemplars because they remind us that self-sufficiency does not work outside of healthy communal practices--chief of which is peacemaking! Read Walters and Jarrell's excellent work and understand what I mean."
--Michael Battle, Founder of PeaceBattle Institute
