    • 2014 Writing Colloquium, "Writing and the Nonviolent Life" with Fr. John Dear


      from Earlham School of Religion Added 69 0 0

      What does it mean to live – and write – the nonviolent life? Drawing on his latest book, The Nonviolent Life, Fr. John Dear will reflect on his 35 years of teaching Gospel nonviolence, working for peace, and writing prophetically. With stories of writing in war zones and in jail cells, of blogging and meeting book deadlines, Dear will invite us to use writing as one tool in the Christian life of prophetic ministry and lead us in a short writing exercise to cultivate our vocation as Christian peacemakers. Nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Fr. Dear has proclaimed the Gospel of Jesus and the way of nonviolence for more that 30 years. He has led peace organizations, worked in homeless shelters, traveled in war zones and been arrested more than 75 times for acts of civil disobedience against war. As a writer, he has published more than 30 books, including Living Peace, Jesus the Rebel, The God of Peace, Peace Behind Bars, The Questions of Jesus, Lazarus Come Forth, A Persistent Peace, and his latest book, The Nonviolent Life.
