The Beatitudes of Peace: Meditations on the Beatitudes, Peacemaking and the Spiritual Life

With a foreword by Nobel Winner Mairead Corrigan Maguire

"The Beatitudes and the Sermon on the Mount are Jesus' blueprint for peace. I urge everyone to study John Dear's beautiful reflections and join his campaign of peace and nonviolence." -- Jimmy Carter, 39th President of the United States, Nobel Peace Prize winner, 2002

The Beatitudes are “the hope and prayer and vision of Jesus…the blueprint for Christian discipleship, the job description of every Christian,” says John Dear. These stirring meditations are more than mere reflections. They are a call to action, a summons to take up the Beatitudes as a daily handbook for life, written by an internationally known voice for peace and nonviolence. Set against vivid descriptions of peace efforts in places like Afghanistan; Israel; and Los Alamos, New Mexico, Dear combines scriptural wisdom with practical advice from peacemakers like Gandhi (who regularly read the Beatitudes), Thomas Merton, Dorothy Day, and many more. In each chapter, Dear affirms that the God of peace is alive and at work among us, calling his sons and daughters into the fullness of a life of true, lasting peace.

"John Dear is the embodiment of a peacemaker," Archbishop Desmond Tutu wrote when he nominated Dear for the Nobel Peace Prize. Featured in the New York Times, The Washington Post, National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered,” and more, Dear is the author of more than 30 books.
