This book takes a fresh look at pacifism as a way of life and a practical method of conflict resolution that is grounded in the Scripture, particularly the Beatitudes from the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew's gospel. Based on a study of just war theory and contemporary world events, this book does not rehearse familiar debates about how to justify war. Rather, it approaches the topic from the provocative angle that the work of peacemakers requires setting goals to be measured in generations, not years.

"Thomas Trzyna has written a thoughtful, articulate meditation on war and peace, both inspired and anchored by the Beatitudes. Trzyna never hestitates to examine pacifism in the context of some of the most violent challenges on earth: terrorism, anarchy, ethnic cleansing, and overpowering militarism. Trzyna's profound discussion of contemporary issues reflects a lifetime of work on issues of war and peace. This is a book to be read and reread. It will stimulate discussion, offer hope, and inspire new directions for action." —James W. Tollefson, author, The Strength Not to Fight: Conscientious Objectors of the Vietnam War
