By Anne Trudel


Dr. Frank Rogers, an author associated with The Upper Room, is featured on a new series on National Public Radio. Rogers discusses his award-winning book Practicing Compassion on the NPR series The Power of Nonviolence.


The Power of Nonviolence series, part of the Humankind project by David Freudberg, highlights peacemakers who help break the cycle of brutality. Rogers is on segments 3 and 4 of the series, available at www.humanmedia.org.

Frank Rogers is a theologian whose personal struggle with rage led him to analyze compassion. In Practicing Compassion, he teaches skills to help people become more compassionate. Through rich and moving stories of people from various faiths, Rogers offers ways to practice compassion in a hurting world.

Practicing Compassion, published by Fresh Air Books, an imprint of The Upper Room, recently was named a finalist in the Spirituality category in the 2015 USA Best Books Awards.

Rogers is the Muriel Bernice Roberts Professor of Spiritual Formation and Narrative Pedagogy and codirector of the Center for Engaged Compassion at Claremont School of Theology.
