About the Author

Muchas personas han encontrado valiosos consejos de parte de Johann Christoph Arnold, galardonado autor con m谩s de un mill贸n de ejemplares de libros impresos, en m谩s de 20 idiomas.

Destacado conferencista y escritor sobre matrimonio, crianza de los hijos, educaci贸n y senectud, Arnold es pastor principal del Bruderhof, movimiento de comunidades cristianas. Junto con su esposa Verena ha aconsejado a miles de personas y familias durante m谩s de 40 a帽os.

El mensaje de Arnold ha tomado forma a partir de encuentros con grandes pacificadores como Martin Luther King Jr., la Madre Teresa, Dorothy Day, C茅sar Ch谩vez y Juan Pablo II. Junto con Steven McDonald, un oficial de polic铆a paral铆tico, Arnold comenz贸 el programa Breaking the Cycle (Rompiendo el ciclo), trabajando con estudiantes en cientos de escuelas p煤blicas preparatorias para promover la reconciliaci贸n a trav茅s del perd贸n. Este trabajo tambi茅n lo ha llevado a zonas de conflicto, desde Irlanda del Norte y Ruanda hasta el Oriente Medio. Muy cerca de su casa, sirve como capell谩n en el departamento de polic铆a local.

Arnold naci贸 en Gran Breta帽a en 1940, hijo de refugiados alemanes, pas贸 sus a帽os de infancia en Am茅rica del Sur, donde sus padres encontraron asilo durante la guerra; y emigr贸 a Estados Unidos en 1955. 脡l y su esposa tienen ocho hijos, 44 nietos y un bisnieto. Todos viven en la zona norte del estado de Nueva York.

Mark K. Shriver is the senior vice president of U.S. Programs at Save the Children in Washington, D.C., and a former Maryland state legislator. Shriver also started the Choice Program and served on the coalition to create the National Commission on Children and Disasters following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. He lives with his wife and three children in Maryland.
