Read a few of the impressive reviews of her brand-new book over at her website, where you can also learn more about Eileen, the backstory to the book, and link to articles she’s published in the Huffington Post, the Christian Century (cover story!), and more.
One of Eileen’s previous books, The Wisdom to Know the Difference, was endorsed by the Dalai Lama, and her articles have a appeared in a wide range of national publications. A graduate of Duke and Yale, Eileen leads the board of Earth Quaker Action Team, which uses nonviolent direct action to work for a just and sustainable economy.
