An Evening with Father John Dear

This new documentary captures an evening with Father John Dear, one of today's leading theologians on peace and nonviolence.

Be inspired and become emboldened in your nonviolent efforts for creation care as you drink in words of wisdom, from Father John's book tour for the book They Will Inherit the Earth; Peace and Nonviolence in a Time of Climate Change. In an eloquent, impassioned plea for the planet, Father John delves into the connection between nonviolence and creation care and makes a compelling case for how and why we can all make a difference, starting today.
