This book was inspiring but still a little depressing. About a man who's qwest is to create peace and tells of a remarkable trip to Germany and the concetration camps. Very inspiring, but it's sad to think about the camps. In the end you do want to do something to make the world a better place.
Bernie Glassman is the priest who never preaches. He suggests a way to deal with pain, do your part, and live a better life, but all through example. His actions and his writing will have you believe you can help solve the seemingly impossible problems and tragedies around us.
