Description:

As the daily newscasts shout violence and fear, Terrence Rynne reminds us that there is a better way. He shows how Mohandas Gandhi, inspired by the Sermon on the Mount and the death of Jesus on the cross, offers hope for the world now. Gandhi's example and the record of nonviolent action since his death ???????????????????????? liberation of much of the world, from Poland to South Africa to the Philippines ???????????????????????? offers not only a model but a new way of understanding Christian salvation and our purpose on earth. Mr. Rynne makes the "better way" clear and compelling for both individuals and nations.
