nonviolence by a master Jun 26, 2007
Jim Douglass is a truly great man, whose commitment to nonviolent resistance to warfare is practical and inspiring. This book, and the next two in the sequence, weaves in an out between Jim and Shelley's (his wife) personal nonviolent resistance to our warfare state and his theological explanations for his positions. His writing is lucid, his personal story inspiring, and his theological reflections deeply supported and unique. THIS IS A MUST READ!!!
