Loving Enemies: A Manual For Ordinary People
by Randy and Joyce Klassen
Like parents and grandparents everywhere, Randy and Joyce Klassen are deeply concerned about the state of the world in which their children and grandchildren will be living. Will violence and wars escalate? Or will the world's peoples, including those in a United States so often involved in war, try a different way? Will even ordinary people commit ourselves to selfless love? Will we strengthen and expand the reality of justice and peace in our world? This book is a manual for those of us ready to try. As Robert K. Johnston, Fuller Theological Seminary, observes in the Foreword, the authors "remind us how inspired we become by the illogic of nonviolence, how moved we are by the redemptive role of forgiveness, how alluring and inviting the example of those like Martin Luther King Jr. or Christians in the Philippines."
