Jesus and the Culture of Peace


“Jesus and the Culture of Peace” was the theme for the 2009 Exploring Catholic Culture program at Wisdom House. Jesuit priest John Dear is an international voice for peace, author or editor of 25 books on nonviolence and, in 2008, was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Archbishop Desmond Tutu. In this video, John Dear emphasizes that the nonviolent Jesus is core to Christianity and that living in nonviolent ways is essential to being peacemakers.
