One of the kindest and most generous human beings I have had the privilege to know. In my view he's truly earned the Nobel Peace Prize. If we had a few more like him, the world would be a far more peaceful place. I first became aware of Blase in the mid-eighties, when he and Theresa were working with the poor and disenfranchised in Central America. He has been a source of inspiration for me ever since. His unrelenting commitment to peace and justice is as extraordinary as his life. He is my personal hero. Blase helps us to understand that the unconventional wisdom of the ages is far more valuable than the conventional hype of the moment. I couldn't walk in Blase Bonpane's shoes, they're too heavy. But I have tried to follow his footsteps which nimbly, deftly, wisely and lovingly try to coax our world into the practice of what it preaches. Not only his feet are prodigious but his hands are the hands of a craftsman, a builder toward those same goals. And to top it off, he's got the head and heart to guide all four. I have been ennobled by my association with Blase and you will feel similarly having read his autobiography. This is a man for all seasons, all peoples. I am often asked by young people, deeply disturbed by the state of the world, "What can I do to make this sad world a better place?" An eloquent answer now is, "Read Blase Bonpane's autobiography. If you can aspire to a fraction of what he has achieved, you will look back on a life well lived. Book jacket.
