This in-depth look at Sr. Megan Rice, the octogenarian religious sister and anti-nuclear weapons activist, highlights the life and work of a bold modern-day advocate for peace. She was convicted for her role in carrying out what the New York Times called "the biggest security breach in the history of the nation'#8217;s atomic complex." After breaking into a nuclear weapons facility, Rice'#8217;s only comment at trial was "I regret I didn'#8217;t do this 70 years ago."Sr. Megan'#8217;s faith in a world that can transform its resources into sustainable, alternative methods doesn'#8217;t end with her own future behind prison walls. Her cause is great and her hope is even greater. From the People of God series. People of God is a brand-new series of inspiring biographies for the general reader. Each volume offers a compelling and honest narrative of the life of an important twentieth or twenty-first century Catholic. Some living and some now deceased, each of these women and men has known challenges and weaknesses familiar to most of us but responded to them in ways that call us to our own forms of heroism. Each offers a credible and concrete witness of faith, hope, and love to people of our own day.Biografía del autor:
