Read full description of the books:
Love In Action is unique among the books of Thich Nhat Hanh that I have read. It is a collection of essays written between the time of the war in Vietnam and the book's publication in 1993. Many of the essays vary in character from one another, some very topical and, unlike most of Thay's writings that I have read, of a certain time and/or place - but also with the transcending wisdom the reader may have come to expect. The reader will find much reference to war in the early going but later will find the topics varying, including the essay "The Sun My Heart" (subjectively, one of my favorite essays in the collection) which seems like a precursor to 2013's Love Letter To The Earth.
To the non-Buddhist like myself, Thich Nhat Hanh's ideas may seem to exist in a realm outside of the concrete to some degree. With Love In Action we see Thay's words address the very realities of this world in a way that many of his writings do not. And as I finished this book I found that my appreciation of his writing has grown tremendously with new perspective of who he is. I suspect that reading of other of Nhat Hanh's books will be improved for me by this new perspective. Highly recommended.

Read information about the authorThích Nhất Hạnh is a Vietnamese Buddhist monk, teacher, author, poet and peace activist who now lives in southwest France where he was in exile for many years. Born Nguyễn Xuân Bảo, Thích Nhất Hạnh joined a Zen (Vietnamese: Thiền) monastery at the age of 16, and studied Buddhism as a novitiate. Upon his ordination as a monk in 1949, he assumed the Dharma name Thích Nhất Hạnh. Thích is an honorary family name used by all Vietnamese monks and nuns, meaning that they are part of the Shakya (Shakyamuni Buddha) clan. He is often considered the most influential living figure in the lineage of Lâm Tế (Vietnamese Rinzai) Thiền, and perhaps also in Zen Buddhism as a whole.
