Product Details


“This book breaks new ground and in so doing is a real testament of hope. Andrus has pulled back a curtain from the pages of history and given us a glimpse into the remarkable and yet not well known friendship between Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.”
—The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry, Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church and author of Love is the Way and The Power of Love

“An important contribution. After almost four decades of intensive research as editor of The Papers of Martin Luther King, Jr., I was surprised to learn about the depth of the friendship between King and Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as their impact on each other.”
—Clayborne Carson, Founding Director, Martin Luther King Jr. Research & Education Institute

“Just when our society, riven by pandemic and party politics, has never seemed more polarized, comes a call to behold one another with the eyes of acceptance and belonging. This call gives us a redemptive purpose and a name: the Beloved Community.”
—Joanna Macy, author of World as Lover, World as Self

“A moving story of two giants separated by race, religion, culture and nationality, and yet profoundly united in their dedication to a deeply interconnected world of peace and compassion.”
Christiana Figueres, author of The Future We Choose

“I have been waiting for a book about Thich Nhat Hanh and Martin Luther King Jr. as friends and brothers since I first learned of their relationship fourteen years ago. Brothers in the Beloved Community tells their powerful story and invites us to follow in their footsteps by finding peace within and working towards a global community centered on human rights, compassion, and love.” 
—Bryant Terry, James Beard award-winning author of Black Food and Editor-in-Chief of 4 Color Books

“A beautiful and wise account of two lives that gave greater life to all of us through their remarkable friendship and shared vision of nonviolence.”
—Joan Halifax, author of Standing at the Edge

“Bishop Andrus invites us into the story of two special friends—lamps of our world—whose life examples make visible the great potential of what a human being can become. This book will awaken your humanity and summon the fierce love, bravery, and healing power we all innately possess.”
—Elizabeth Mattis Namgyel, author of The Logic of Faith
