"Next, Nouwen urges us to "resist the powers of death"--Not just armies and armaments, but our everyday selfishness and bondage to destructive consumerism. Finally, he shows us how to celebrate life and to build communities in which love, forgiveness, and compassion bind us in solidarity with a wounded world."--Jacket." ;
