Overview

From Mahatma Gandhi to Dorothy Day to Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace Is the Way provides an indispensable collection of writings from the greatest peacemakers of our time.

The Fellowship of Reconciliation, founded in 1914, is the leading ecumenical peace organization in the United States. From the pages of its magazine, Fellowship, come these selections highlighting some of the preeminent leaders of the struggle to promote peace and nonviolent action.

These sixty original and classic essays cover the theory, practice, and spirituality of nonviolence, as well as document the struggle for racial justice and the cause of reconciliation. Together they offer a comprehensive and inspiring chronicle of the global movement for peace, ideal for students, activists, and all who wish to share in building a more just and peaceful world.
