This updated edition ÔÇô with a new colour-plate section ÔÇô is published to celebrate the centenary of Brother RogerÔÇÖs birth on 12 May 1915.
In August 2005, Brother Roger, the charismatic founder and leader of the Taiz?® community, was attacked and killed while praying with more than two thousand young people. His death came almost sixty-five years after he crossed the border from his native Switzerland into war-ravaged France and settled in the tiny village of Taiz?®. At a time when Europe was torn asunder, Brother Roger wondered why such conflict should exist between people, and particularly between Christians. He found himself called to establish a community in which reconciliation and peace would be made concrete day by day. Today, thousands of young people from all over the world and from every denomination gather each week at Taiz?® to pray, study and worship.
This is the biography of the man who made the phenomenon of Taiz?® possible. It is the story of a life that took Brother Roger from the slums of Calcutta and New YorkÔÇÖs HellÔÇÖs Kitchen to the United Nations building and the great cathedrals of Europe. Being imbued with a spontaneity and wisdom that made him the companion of popes and of little children, Brother Roger was one of the best-loved Christian leaders of our time.
