''In this magnificent finale to this trilogy, Walter Wink engages the Powers with brilliant exergesis and a profoundly creative nonviolence, revealing the way to the Powers' and our own transformation. Wink on the Powers is a classic resource for activist and scholar alike.'' --James W. Douglass, Ground Zero Community
''This book provides an intellectual, historical, and scriptural basis for the truth of Christian nonviolence. It will be an inspiration to many people, and particularly helpful to those who have come into nonviolence intuitively, or through a painful experience.'' --Mairead (Corrigan) Maguire, Nobel Peace Laureate, Northern Ireland
