beatitudes of peace FRONT cover -smallJohn Dear has a new book coming out on June 6th from Twenty-Third Publications – The Beatitudes of Peace: Meditations on the Beatitudes, Peacemaking and the Spiritual Life

You can order today on our website or at Amazon.com! 

The book has already received praise from Jimmy Carter and Nobel Peace Prize Winner Mairead Maguire.

“The Beatitudes and the Sermon on the Mount are Jesus’ blueprint for peace. I urge everyone to study John Dear’s beautiful reflections and join his campaign of peace and nonviolence.”
– Jimmy Carter

“In this beautiful book, Father John Dear describes the Beatitudes and the Sermon on the Mount as ‘the blueprint for Christian discipleship, the job description of every Christian.’ In this book, John Dear recounts his ongoing journey into nonviolence as a way of life, as the way of Jesus and as the way to life. I hope it will inspire and touch many hearts.  Each of us can choose peace over war, nonviolence over violence, and love over hate. After reading and studying the Beatitudes, Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount and these reflections, may the Spirit of Love lead us to choose peace and nonviolence, and abandon war and militarism once and for all.”
–  From the foreword by Nobel Peace Prize winner Mairead Corrigan Maguire

John will also be available in the fall for speaking engagements and book-signings. Please contact info@paceebene.org or call 510-268-8765 to set an evening event with John. Dates are limited, so contact us soon.

Order your copy here today or from Amazon!


“John Dear is the embodiment of a peacemaker,” Archbishop Desmond Tutu wrote recently when he nominated Dear for the Nobel Peace Prize. Featured in the New York Times, The Washington Post, National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered,” and more, Father John Dear is the author of more than 35 books and hundreds of articles. A long time peace activist, teacher, and retreat leader, he works for Campaign Nonviolence, continues to lecture around the nation and the world, and lives in New Mexico. See: www.johndear.org
