Synopsis

Continuing the series he began with Isaiah and Ezekiel, Berrigan fuses social critique, Jewish midrash, and political commentary to bring us a book of stylistic distinction and spiritual depth. Daniel reveals the deep biblical moorings beneath Berrigan's fabled activism, and demonstrates why he has become a trusted mentor for three generations of pacifists and resisters. A bold and unorthodox application of the Old Testament to current political and social discourse, Daniel is a powerful charge to all people of conscience.
