John Dear believes that social activism and faith are inseparable. Acting in the name of the nonviolent Jesus, Dear has been arrested more than 75 times, has spent more than a year of his life in jail, and has been mocked by armed U.S. soldiers standing outside the doors to his New Mexico parish.

A Persistent Peace, John Dear’s autobiography, invites readers to follow the decades-long journey of social activism and spiritual growth of this nationally known peace activist and to witness his bold, decisive, often unpopular actions on behalf of peace. From his conversion to Christianity, to his calling to become a Jesuit, to the extreme dangers and delights of a life dedicated to truly living out the radical, forgiving love of Jesus, John’s incredible story of social activism will touch anyone who believes in the power of peace.
