An Evening with John Dear on his new book

Peacemaker, author, and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Father John Dear will be at the monastery on April 5 to talk about and sign copies of his new book, The Gospel of Peace: A Commentary on Matthew, Mark, and Luke from the Perspective of Nonviolence. It is the first commentary on the Synoptic Gospels from the perspective of active nonviolence in the tradition of Gandhi and Dr. King. In this original work, John walks us through the three synoptic Gospels highlighting Jesus' practice and teachings on nonviolence, peace, and universal love. Join us on Friday April 5, 7:00 p.m. at Mount Saint Benedict Monastery
