Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Wade (founder, Soldiers of Love) asked more than 100 leaders and thinkers to contribute brief essays on ways to improve the world, and his respondents here include Al Gore, Ted Turner, George W. Bush, President Obama, Marianne Williamson, Tony Blair, and Paul Prudhomme, speaking to peace; security; freedom; democracy; prosperity; spiritual, racial, and ecological harmony; health; and moral purpose. The broad range is hard to describe in brief. The contributors agree that something can be done, and even must be done, but their solutions are as various as they are themselves. VERDICT A fascinating octopus of a book on global change, reaching in all directions at once.

Whether we are religious or not, the heaven-on-earth idea resonates. It is positive in the extreme, and universally understood. It is an idea that stirs the imagination and can motivate us to do something personal to help bring it about. While the 101 essays in this book take 101 different slants on the issue, all are upbeat. And although many of them point out problems and roadblocks, they also highlight solutions and ways around those roadblocks. Most of the essays suggest a particular way of making a contribution to the world around us. None of these contributions, by themselves, will bring about a heaven on earth. But taken together they give us a sense of the power inherent in a multitude of small individual actions. And while none of the suggested ways may be exactly your way or my way, I don't think any of us could read this book without getting our own thoughts deeply stirred. The result: we are very likely to get insight into how we ourselves could nudge the process in the direction of that heaven-on-earth ideal.
