This is an autiobiography of Franklin Zahn, who was raised as a Christian Scientist and became an engineer. About the time of World War II he came to realize that war and violence was wrong. He was one of the first conscientious objectors in the Christian Science Church, which is not a traditional peace church. He realized that even alternative service aided and abetted the war effort. Throughout his life he objected to paying taxes which support the military, he opposed nuclear testing, and spent his life seeking peaceful alternatives. He was often jailed for his efforts. He sought spirituality in Christian and Eastern religions. Franklin Zahn worked for the betterment of society in the Los Angeles area. Book is written with humor and frankness. ( )
