From the Publisher:

Bernie Glassman has always been known as a maverick in the Buddhist world. I sometimes call him a loose Buddhist cannon! But theres nothing loose about the way in which he puts his principles into practice. The Buddhism Bernie teaches is grounded in whatever difficult moment he or his students are facing. He encourages everyone to be present without importing any of our preconceived ideas into the situation. Only then will we be free to move in a new direction and resolve the problem. Zen Peacemaker priests may find themselves in fiercer circumstances than the rest of us but the teaching to be found in Bearing Witness is effective whether we are at home, at work, or at war.
--Toinette Lippe, Bell Tower, Editorial Director

From Booklist:

In January 1994, as Zen teacher Bernie Glassman marked his fiftieth year, he did something special, founding the Zen Peacemaker Order. This order would comprise a community of activists, both organized and individual, and would provide them with a center from which to share stories and information. Yet, most important, the order's core would be spiritual--a universal spirituality. Glassman, who has been very active in social service activities, founding entrepreneurial ventures in economically blighted communities as well as spearheading the founding of some of this country's first AIDS hospice centers, is not new to spiritual action. He brings a centered, even, and balanced perspective to what one might do to better the current state of social affairs. Through the people Glassman meets and ordains as Peacemakers, the reader gathers a sense of what it means to devote oneself to the universal task of making peace with the here and now and, most important, past. Raul Nino
