Item description for Nonviolence: the Way of the Cross by Kk Kuriakose...
Overview "The way of the Cross, the way of nonviolence: How often we preach on these themes, but how seldom do our words affect the attitudes and activities of those around us! Here at last is a study guide intended to translate our preaching into practice-into nonviolent skills applicable in everyday life. With Bible-based activities suitable for every age group, this will be a welcome resource for all who want to make their church communities into agents of reconciliation and peace." -John H. Erickson, Dean St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary, New York "Nonviolence is often dismissed as a utopian or sectarian fancy with a weak analysis of evil and of little practical value for resolving conflict. Even Christians committed to nonviolence may consider pacifism a faithful rather than effective way of following Jesus amidst the realities of global violence. Fr. Kuriakose's unique study guide offers clear biblical grounding for the teaching of nonviolence, as well as practical activities for youth and adults to acquire real skills for contemporary peacemaking. It will surely become a treasured tool for peace pedagogy." -Paul Keim, Associate Professor of Bible, Religion, and Philosophy Goshen College (Mennonites), Indiana "Father Kuriakose has put together a very helpful book that takes the young Christian step-by-step through an interpretation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and sheds light on the meaning of violence and how the way of nonviolence fulfills the gospel imperative. Each lesson is clear and brings the student quickly to the point. It is timely, it is relevant, it counters the prevailing modern culture of violence in America. What is more, it is obvious. I highly commend this book for young people in the church." -The Rev. Peter Strand, Pastor First Presbyterian Church, Ridgefield Park, New Jersey
