This book was written about 50 years ago and is so timely for 2017.

The Nonviolent Alternative presents an exhaustive compilation of Merton's dissertations about the role of the Christian, the church, and the citizen in the function of peacekeeping. The book specifically targets the topics of nuclear warfare, the Cold War, and the arms race.

The reader will likely find the book at least slightly redundant of itself. The book contains constant references to catholic ideology -a fact which many non Catholics will likely find grating. However, the book challenges the logical processes of the reader and forces him or her into contemplations that the reader has unlikely grappled with before. The book presents a profound introduction to Merton as well as his rhetoric.

It does not look Catholic, like Augustine.
