Nonviolence International president Dr. Mubarak Awad is featured in the new bookBlessed Are the Peacemakers by Daniel L. Buttry, the global consultant for Peace and Justice for International Ministries of the American Baptist Churches. Buttry writes of Awad's work in nonviolent organization and tells of his role in the first Palestinian Intifada. The book surveys the work of many well known nonviolent activists, such as Gandhi and Desmond Tutu, along with some interesting additions, such as graffiti artist Banksy and rock superstar Bono. This collection of inspirational stories about peacemakers and their work will prove to be a must-read for those interested in nonviolent action.
