Product Description
One of the most influential Catholic figures of the of the twentieth century, Jesuit priest and activist Daniel Berrigan has inspired countless people of faith and conscience to pursue the gospel vision of a world without war. In 1968 he made national headlines as one of the Catonsville Nine, who destroyed draft files to protest the Vietnam War. In the nearly thirty years since then he has continued to challenge the conscience of both his country and the church by his uncompromising manner of Christian witness. In Apostle of Peace, reflective essays by forty fellow travelers celebrate Berrigan's life and gifts as a peacemaker, prophet, poet, priest, and ""keeper of the word."" These essays by distinguished friends and colleagues from every walk of life are written in honor of Berrigan's seventy-fifth birthday. Contributors include: - Berrigan's brother and fellow archivist Philip Berrigan - Benedictine Joan Chittister - former Attorney General Ramsey Clark - psychiatrist Robert Coles - Bishop Thomas Gumbleton - writer and activist Joyce Hollyday - poets Denise Levertov and Thich Nhat Hanh - activist Elizabeth McCallister - columnist Colman McCarthy - historian Howard Zinn - author and storyteller Megan McKenna - Franciscan Richard Rohr - theologian Rosemary Radford Ruether - actor Martin Sheen - fellow Jesuits Jon Sobrino and Richard McSorley - L'Arche founder Jean Vanier - Sojourners founder Jim Wallis - Superior General of the Society of Jesus Peter-Hans Kolvenbach - Plus many others
