Lazarus, Come Forth book coverLong time peace activist, Father John Dear offers a compelling new reading of the story of Lazarus, which calls us all to pursue a life of peace.

If Lazarus represents humanity, the story of his raising is about the God of Life confronting the power of death itself, calling humanity to walk out of its tomb—the culture of violence and war—and into "the new life of resurrection peace."
