Dismantling the hells. Practicing the nonviolence of Jesus today

169
Booklet
Publication date: 
October 2018

In the face of the hells created by violence, oppression, and repression, the victims of injustice seem to have no other alternative than fight (action-reaction) or flight (silent submission). This booklet explores the “third way” of Jesus, which goes far beyond those two options. This “third way” is the path of active non-violence, a path that requires great lucidity, creativity, faith, and constancy. It comes out of a long biblical tradition, and it acquires special meaning in the context of our present-day society. [In addition to the translation into Catalan and Spanish that you can find on this website, the text has been translated into German, which you can find at this link].
