Scott Brown has brought a wide and rich variety of life experiences to bear on the crucial subject of how to make and live peace in a world ravaged by violence. He was on the frontlines of activism for fifteen years before dedicating his life to learning the ways of peacemaking….Scott is unsparingly honest and emotionally open and vulnerable, willing to share the burdens and subtle revelations of his brave heart and his ways of staying infused with hope and energy in a world in turmoil. Active Peace is not armchair philosophizing: it is a passionately engaged and pragmatic message from the trenches of a life devoted to service.

—Andrew Harvey (from the foreword)
