The Narrow Path DVD

Following in the footsteps of the great apostles of nonviolence – Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., Dorothy Day, Thomas Merton and Oscar Romero – John Dear, SJ presents in The Narrow Path the challenging message of Jesus in a fresh way, speaking with new force and vision of God’s plea for peace. Fr. John Dear’s interpretation of the life and death of Jesus calls for the body of Christ, the Church, to follow in the way of Jesus to the very end, without compromise, no matter the cost. The Narrow Path is a bold and challenging film, a prophetic call to embody the nonviolence of Jesus and become instruments of peace. Not only does this film address the biblical teachings in the Sermon on the Mount, but John Dear spends a good deal of time focusing on the lifestyle of nonviolence (internal and external) as a priority before God and the example of his son, Jesus. Available since April 2007 from the San Damiano Foundation website or call them tor order the DVD at (818)563-1947. Click the play button below to watch the four minute trailer.
