Just Peacemakers: Resources for Contributing to the Common Good is an essential guide for those involved or interested in social justice and the Christian call to discipleship. "Our actions do make a difference. Society is not static . . . but at any given moment is a product of the behavior of those who enjoy its benefits, suffer from its inadequacies, and contribute to its flourishing or decline. The question is not whether our actions make a difference, but what kind of actions we should undertake."--Mary Evelyn Jegen, SND This timely and urgent book does more than describe societal problems--it gives concrete methods and means toward resolution. Each chapter is designed for personal study and also for use by groups. Topics covered include: making connections between the Eucharist and hungry people; structures of grace and structures of sin; desiring the well-being of others; seven ways to work for justice; nonviolence and hospitality. Just Peacemakers: Resources for Contributing to the Common Good will encourage and equip those who want to deepen their understanding and also hone their skills as peace and justice advocates. It is also recommended for those who shy away from involvement in peace and justice advocacy because the issues seem daunting and their solutions out of reach.
