Out of Jim Kenney's own lifetime work with grassroots communities and interfaith / intercultural movements has come this inspirational book, which will excite and energize its readers. His articulation and affirmation of humanity's growing new consciousness of our interdependence, and our cultural evolution from old ways into new values – based on justice, nonkilling, nonviolence, and peace – will give hope to the human family.
Here's hoping we're in for a sea change of the kind Jim Kenney describes – it will take real shifts if we're to deal with the problems bearing down on us, climate change most of all. And those shifts will, as he says, have their roots in our _understanding of who we are.
It is a welcome surprise to read a book that proclaims 'things are getting better.' Most people only see and bewail the decay of traditional values. It takes a person with Jim Kenney's wide historical perspective, awareness of contemporary innovative thinking, and prophetic vision, to discern the emerging new values, which are global rather than parochial, and which will, I pray, provide the moral and spiritual basis for a more peaceful and caring civilization, which treasures the sacredness of all life.
Jim Kenney believes that we are living in an exciting time of cultural evolutionary sea change. He draws on his broad experience at the cutting-edge of work for peace and justice and offers a compelling vision of human possibility.
