John Dear

Author Talk: John Dear

Father John Dear will discuss his book The Gospel of Peace: A Commentary on Matthew, Mark, and Luke from the Perspective of Nonviolence. He offers the first-ever commentary on the Synoptic Gospels from the perspective of active nonviolence in the tradition of Gandhi and Dr. King. He walks through every line of the three Synoptic Gospels, pointing out Jesus' practice and teachings of nonviolence each step of the way.

Dear's Jesus is like Gandhi and Dr. King--nonviolent to the core, a disarming, healing presence toward those in need, and a revolutionary disrupter of the unjust status quo and a political threat to the ruling authorities who succeed in killing him, only to push Jesus to the heights of nonviolence through his death and resurrection. This original commentary brings a fresh new approach to the Gospels that will help all those who preach and engage in social ministries and inspire everyone in this time of permanent warfare, gun violence, racism, poverty, and climate change.
