“A.J. Muste has a very special place in the lives of all those of the World War II generation who objected to or resisted that war. It is good to have this new biography to make A. J.’s life and work visible for a new group of readers. Those who knew him will undoubtedly learn about aspects of his life not previously known. Some who become acquainted with him for the first time will certainly be astonished at the range of his activities and work. The biography traces Muste’s life from his birth in Holland through his emigration to the United States, where his family settled in Michigan, his early life as a devout member of the Dutch Reformed Church, his undergraduate years at Hope College, and his later graduate work at Columbia University and at New Brunswick and Union Theological Seminaries.” —Larry Gara, Friends Historial Association, 1982.
