Sam Walton at Quaker Peace & Social Witness commissioned this book. It isn’t quite what he asked for, but they published it anyway. It was expertly edited by Louisa Wright and the beautiful cover design was painted by Sarah Gittins.
The blurb: ‘What does committing to peace mean in a violent world? How might this commitment shape out relationships with one another, ourselves, and the earth? David Gee argues for a contemporary, practical faith that enlivens our humanity and stands with life’s dignity in the face of its violation. A powerful and sometimes challenging exploration, Holding Faith shows how this “humane passion played out in the world” can enrich the way we live and begin to turn our societies around.’
