buying-timeDuring the Cold War, with the doomsday clock at three minutes to midnight, protesters risked their lives and freedom at nuclear weapon sites. Join a rabble-rousing Catholic priest and Methodist minister, a kindergarten teacher, and a Quaker homemaker, as they beat swords into plowshares, or in this case, hammer on a B-52 bomber. Arrested and jailed, they bought the world time through doing time. 

“Patricia Robertson’s book takes you down the little-trod path of heroic sacrifice in the name of faith and action.” Ken Wyatt, retired editorial writer, Jackson Citizen Patriot (Michigan).
