“The choice is not between violence and nonviolence but between nonviolence and nonexistence.” - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Thinking Through Gandhi: Gandhi's Ideas and How They Can Still Inspire is concerned with bringing the essence of Gandhi's ideas of nonviolence, service, and personal development into a modern context. The book aims to inspire a desire to do more than admire the legacies of history's great peace exponents. Rather, it poses the question: In what ways does Gandhi's intellectual and spiritual legacy encourage us to think differently. How can we make real the perennial aspirations to be better, more ethical, more peaceful in our own lives and in our community living? Thinking Through Gandhi pointedly raises these questions, and in so doing, it aims to reinvigorate the core of a nonviolent stance – by articulating nonviolence as an active, guiding principle of personal living.
