A beautiful and gut-wrenching memoir, Waging Peace exposes the false divide between loving our country and living out our faith’s call to love our enemies–whether we perceive our enemy as the neighbor with an opposing political viewpoint, the clerk wearing a head-covering, or the refugee from a war-torn country. By showing that us-versus-them is a false choice, this book will inspire each of us to choose love over fear.
Are you ready for a unique way to expand your cultural and global understanding in a safe, non-threatening environment where you can process out loud with others? There is nothing better than curling up with a new book, especially one that takes you on a journey of discovery and gives you permission to ponder ideas you might not have otherwise considered. Stories of courageous women who through trials beyond comprehension, learned the true meaning of putting love first, forgiveness, and the power of sisterhood and prayer. Join others around the globe as we breathe in these stories of hope and inspiration through the lens of peacemaking.
