Is nonviolence irresponsible? Is peacemaking naïve?

From one of the most respected and prophetic voices in Christianity today comes Speak Your Peace. Ronald J. Sider, author of the influential Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger, plumbs Scripture, building a persuasive case that Jesus meant what he said when he commanded us to love our enemies.

With candor and logic, Sider takes on enduring questions about violence and nonviolence, showing how the contemporary church in a warring world has largely set aside Jesus’ call to love our enemies and traded its birthright in Christ for a stew of nationalism and militarism. But ignoring what Jesus said about killing is a huge theological mistake. Returning us to the inescapable call of the Son of God, Sider reminds the church of its true vocation in a world of hatred and war.



“Ron Sider helps us see that nonviolence is at the very heart of the kingdom Jesus proclaimed.”

STANLEY HAUERWAS, professor emeritus of divinity and law at Duke University


“I’m deeply grateful for this reading of the Bible and the challenge to live it as a witness against the militarism of our culture’s war economy.”

JONATHAN WILSON-HARTGROVE, author of Revolution of Values


“Ron Sider’s explication of Christian nonviolence is one of the strongest I have seen and draws a clear picture of what it means to truly follow Jesus’ beatitude of ‘Blessed are the peacemakers.’”

JIM WALLIS, president of Sojourners, editor-in-chief of Sojourners magazine, and author of America’s Original Sin


“Ron Sider dares us to consider Jesus’ call to love our enemies not as an idealistic goal, but as a realistic policy to be implemented in word and deed by individuals and communities.”

KATHY KHANG, author of Raise Your Voice


“A revolutionary book for these days.”

JO ANNE LYON, ambassador and general superintendent emerita of the Wesleyan Church
