LOVING ENEMIES: A MANUAL FOR ORDINARY PEOPLE, by Randy and Joyce Klassen, is a resource for anyone interested in pursuing peace in a world of violence.

Like parents and grandparents everywhere, Randy and Joyce Klassen are deeply concerned about the state of the world in which their children and grandchildren will be living. Will violence and wars escalate? Or will the world’s peoples, including those in a United States so often involved in war, try a different way? Will even ordinary people commit ourselves to selfless love? Will we strengthen and expand the reality of justice and peace in our world? This book is a manual for those of us ready to try.

Clearly the Klassens speak out of their own commitment to the nonviolent Way of Jesus and in hopes that others will join them in this commitment. At the same time, a unique feature of their book is their cordial engagement with Liberal, Conservative, Catholic, and Orthodox Christians as well as Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, and Agnostics.

“At the end of World War 2," says Peter J. Dyck, lifetime Mennonite Central Committee worker and pastor (retired), "I stood in England before Judge Burgess and said, ‘Your honor, if you want to handcuff me, go ahead and do it. I will not kill another person.’ It took Joyce and Randy Klassen 40 years to reach the same position. Read their story."
