This is spiritual memoir of Jim Forest, told largely through his interaction with some of the great peacemakers of our time—Dorothy Day, Dan Berrigan, Thomas Merton, Thich Nhat Hanh. It traces his journey from the son of Communists, his rebellious enlistment in the Navy, then discharge as a CO after becoming simultaneously a Catholic and a pacifist. He was key figure in mobilizing religious protest against the Vietnam War and served two years in prison for his role in the Milwaukee 14. But his journey continued, including his work as secretary of the International Fellowship of Reconciliation, and conversion to Russian Orthodoxy. It is the story of lifetime in the service of Christ’s peace, and extraordinary companions who joined him along the way.
