Praise Be Peace – Psalms of Peace and Nonviolence in a time of War and Climate Change

250.00

In a violent world, and amid the reality of catastrophic climate change, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Where can we turn to find the courage and inspiration we need to stay hopeful and to keep working for peace? International peace activist Fr John Dear has always found support and comfort in the psalms. In this profound and deeply reflective book he helps us see that if we read the psalms from Jesus’ vision of non-violence, we will find new strength to turn away from hate and anger towards greater trust and devotion to God and newfound wisdom, gratitude and wonder. Filled with stories from his life and steeped in wisdom from both the Eastern and the Western peace traditions, these powerful and prayerful contemplations of thirty-two key psalms will strengthen our daily commitment to non-violence and love. May these pages, says Fr Dear, encourage you on your journey and lead you to even greater blessings of peace.
