Written by one of the shining lights of the nonviolent resistance community, this is one of Wink's last books. It ties Jesus messages about nonviolence with practical ways that activists may apply them. There are three ways to respond to injustice: we can fight it with violence, we can run from it (or just tolerate it) or we can resist it in a nonviolent way. Nonviolent resistance is more than just getting justice for the oppressed, it is also about bringing the oppressor and the oppressed together in community. A central tenet is to love your enemy. ( )

Walter Wink's book goes up on my shelf along with John Dear's "The Nonviolent Life" and Michael Nagler's "The Nonviolence Handbook" as an essential primary source and study resource for nonviolent living. ( )
