Dominican Friar, Fr. Peter Murnane, co-founder of the Peace Place's recently released an autobiographical book.


In Archways to the Infinite, Peter bares his soul, sharing his life’s journey through anecdotes and reflections, carefully weaving an entertaining and invigorating account of his life as a Dominican Friar. From his memories as a young child, to his arrest as a priest following a major protest at the Waihopai Valley spy base in New Zealand, Peter shares his personal struggles in human rights, censorship, sexuality, celibacy, doctrinal belief, and, above all, his relationship with what he terms ‘The Transcendent’.

Online orders can be made from the NZ distributor, Pleroma via this link.
