Controversial peace activist and Jesuit priest John Dear talks about his new book, A Persistent Peace: One Man’s Struggle for a Nonviolent World, which chronicles his conversion from a “spoiled frat boy” at Duke University to a crusading opponent of war who has been arrested over 70 times. A frequent traveler who has visited war zones worldwide, Dear has waged an especially intense campaign against the military activities of the United States, a country he believes is fast on its way to becoming an empire. Dear talks about his commitment to the Beatitudes, why every Catholic should join Pax Christi and why America should stop accepting advertisements for military chaplains. Listen to this episode
