Essential Writings
by Daniel Berrigan; Edited with an Introduction by John Dear, S. J.

Review: Kurt Vonnegut once wrote, “For me, Father Daniel Berrigan is Jesus as a poet.” In this new anthology John Dear has culled selections from his fellow Jesuit’s poems, journals, essays, and homilies. For Berrigan all spiritual writing is political—for it resists the culture of war and injustice by its very nature—and all political writing for peace and justice is quintessentially spiritual—for it points to the reign of God.
