Advancing Nonviolence and Just Peace in the Church and World is the groundbreaking Catholic “peoples encyclical” on nonviolence as the forward-looking theology, spirituality, and practice for the Church when engaging issues of violence and developing peace.
120 theologians, social scientists, biblical scholars, grassroots practitioners, and pastoral leaders across 39 countries met over three years to discern how to return nonviolence to the heart of the Catholic Church.
Advancing Nonviolence is edited by Rose Marie Berger, Ken Butigan, Judy Coode, and Marie Dennis and published by Pax Christi International. All proceeds support the work of Pax Christi International.
What are people saying about Advancing Nonviolence?
“We need to mainstream nonviolence in the Church. We need to move it from the margins of Catholic thought to the center. Nonviolence is a spirituality, a lifestyle, a program of societal action and a universal ethic.”–Bishop Robert McElroy, San Diego
“In reading Advancing Nonviolence, I was moved by the gift we have been given through the gospel, tradition, and teachings of peace and nonviolence.”–Josianne Gauthier, Secretary General, CIDSE
“Active, compassionate and cooperative nonviolence is essential for our future survival. This book helps chart that path.”–Tiffany Easthom, Nonviolent Peaceforce
“The Catholic Nonviolence Initiative, on behalf of Pax Christi International, has now put together a significant, integral argument for advancing nonviolence globally. While discussions on just war have had such texts for centuries, it is hard to say that the movement for Catholics supporting nonviolence have had such a foundational text of compelling resources until now.”–James Keenan, S.J., Boston College
