Under the Siege of the Divine
  • By Daniel Berrigan, S.J.

The renowned poet, priest, and activist brings to life his namesake and role model, the biblical prophet Daniel.
Daniel Berrigan's powerful, poetic commentary on the biblical book of Daniel brings to life a prophet who has as much to say to our hedonistic, warring world as he did to the people of Old Testament times. 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.
