U.S. Catholic book club: A Persistent Peace

Review: What would happen if you actually tried to live out loud the gospel’s radical and persistent call to peacemaking? You probably would find your life not too far off the one that John Dear, S.J. details in his autobiography, and, well, you would get arrested a lot.

Dear is well known among Catholic pacifists – and among more than a few law enforcement agents in New Mexico – for his clear-minded devotion to Catholic principles of peace. His story should inspire the civil-disobedient in all of us, even as reading it feels like spending a quiet evening with an old friend with a really good tale to tell. —
