Documenting the work of Christian peace activists whose radicalism often places them on the fringes of the Church, this book dispels the popular perception of Christians as conventional, respectable and passive. It explains the issues and recounts the personal experiences of some of those involved in various aspects of the peace movement, including clergy and lay people who have served prison sentences as a result of direct non-violent action and who are prepared to do so again. This alternative vision of what it means to be a Christian depicts a radical, compassionate faith that challenges the status quo, including the position of the churches themselves on peace issues. 118264 Bernadette Meaden
