About-

"I have a sense that the times themselves, apart from more or less deliberately created crises, render strong things fragile, and fragile things mortally endangered. The times themselves are a permanent crisis."

So writes Daniel Berrigan in this journal of reflections and musings from the late 1970s. First published in 1981, this book traces Berrigan's work after his release from Danbury Prison in 1972 for his part in the Catonsville Nine antiwar demonstration--from his experiences in Palestine, Northern Ireland, and France (where he lived with Thich Nhat Hanh), to his experiences as a teacher in Manitoba and Berkeley. Throughout, Berrigan ponders the commands of Christ, the struggle to be faithful to these commands, and why so few take them seriously. With wit and wisdom, Berrigan shares his faith journey and encourages us to stay faithful to that journey, to be peacemakers for the long haul.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"In a time when 'the American ethos swamps the gospel,' Daniel Berrigan has written a book for those who do not want to be overcome. It is a book about a minority or remnant church which is willing to pay the costs of saying 'No' to Caesar as the way today to reap the joy of saying 'Yes' to Christ....This is a book to rouse a generation. It rings with gospel hope."

Robert Raines (from the Editor's Foreword)

"Daniel Berrigan is the sort of priest who causes the lights of the Vatican to burn through the night."

Newsweek


"For me, Daniel Berrigan is Jesus as a poet. If this be heresy, make the most of it."

Kurt Vonnegut
