About-

This new edition of Daniel Berrigan's classic autobiography To Dwell in Peace, with a new afterword by the author, takes us through his childhood in Syracuse; his early years as a Jesuit, teacher, priest, and poet; his bold 1968 Catonsville Nine action, when he poured homemade napalm on draft files in opposition to the U.S. war on Vietnam; and his ongoing civil disobedience, which led to his going underground and subsequent two-year imprisonment.

We read of friends like Thomas Merton, Dorothy Day, William Stringfellow, and his brother Philip Berrigan, with whom he participated again in the 1980 Plowshares Eight disarmament action. Daniel Berrigan's breathtaking story and the poetic way he tells it inspire and challenge us to resist war, pursue nuclear disarmament, and undertake a similar journey to peace, hope, and justice.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"A powerful and poetic account of Berrigan's life and work, as well as a prophetic call to go forth in faith striving towards the long promised blessing reserved for peacemakers."
--Martin Sheen, actor and activist

"Daniel Berrigan is a poet and prophet for these times. This autobiography offers a compelling look at his own life, the fertile ground from which Daniel Berrigan's timely word has come. The courage, the clarity, and the persistence of that word bear compelling witness to his vocation as a messenger of the Word of God."
--Jim Wallis, editor of Sojourners magazine

"A masterpiece, a literary work of art and a document of historic value."
--John Dear, Jesuit activist and author, in the foreword to this new edition
