They Will Inherit the Earth

Peace and Nonviolence in a Time of Climate Change

Book Cover: They Will Inherit the Earth
Part of the Justice & Peace series:

In the Beatitudes, Jesus says of the meek, “they will inherit the earth.” Meekness, John Dear argues, is the biblical word for nonviolence. He makes the connection Jesus makes at the start of his Sermon on the Mount between our practice of nonviolence and our unity with creation: our rejection of nonviolence is inevitably linked to the catastrophic effects of climate change and environmental ruin.
