Draw Your Weapons

Draw Your Weapons

$31.00

 A single book might not change the world. But this utterly original meditation on art and war might transform the way you see the world--and that makes all the difference. "How to live in the face of so much suffering? What difference can one person make in this beautiful, imperfect, and imperiled world?" Through a dazzling combination of memoir, history, reporting, visual culture, literature, and theology, Sarah Sentilles offers an impassioned defense of life lived by peace and principle. It is a literary collage with an urgent hope at its core: that art might offer tools for remaking the world. In Draw Your Weapons, Sentilles tells the true stories of Howard, a conscientious objector during World War II, and Miles, a former prison guard at Abu Ghraib, and in the process she challenges conventional thinking about how war is waged, witnessed, and resisted.
