Daniel Berrigan

  • Daniel Under The Siege Of The Divine

    $26.00

    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.

    A bold and unorthodox application of the Old Testament to current political and social discourse, Daniel is not simply a book about a bygone prophet, but a powerful charge to all people of conscience. As Berrigan writes, “There are principalities of today to be confronted, their idols and thrice-stoked furnaces and caves of lions, their absurd self-serving images and rhetoric. Someone must pink their pride, decode the handwriting on the wall. Who is to stand up, to withstand?”

  • No Gods But One

    $24.99

    On the face of it, Deuteronomy seems to be a book filled with triumph – the pronouncement of the commandments, the end of the Israelites’ long exile, the coming of the Promised Land.

    But Daniel Berrigan here turns a searching eye toward this text and finds its darker side. Moses, the people’s leader for forty years, is denied entrance to the land he dreamt about. The people desperately create a golden calf to worship even as God is giving Moses the two tablets. The Promised Land, full of milk and honey, is also full of inhabitants – gaining entrance means destroying or driving out a number of its people.

    Berrigan draws clear parallels between Deuteronomy’s time of mingled triumph and broken law and our own moment in history, uncovering the stories within the story of this complex biblical book. With both great grace and incisive candor, he turns Deuteronomy inside out and makes us look at it – and ourselves – in a fresh light.

  • Kings And Their Gods

    $25.99

    The scenario that confronts us in First and Second Kings is one of turbulence. Daniel Berrigan minces no words in his assessment of this biblical era. Prophets, kings, and the gods they worship – all are found wanting. In seven chapters of The Kings and Their Gods he examines the complex terrain of these two biblical books, opening our eyes to the stories of these characters that we have not seen before. He further forces us to see that this dark time in biblical history is in many ways repeating itself today. The wars of these kings, he says, are our wars today, and we are fashioning our own gods to approve our misdeeds. These two books come to vivid life with the realization of their similarity to our own time. With these parallels, Berrigan incisively indicts us, not excluding himself in this judgment. However, he also points to the light that is possible from this darkness, enjoining us to speak and do the Word, making it alive in the world today. The Kings and Their Gods reveals Berrigan in stunning form. Here this modern-day prophet distills the wisdom of his life, his learning, and his remarkable experience. It is both a masterful biblical commentary and a clarion call to action. This is truly a midrash for our troubled times – both an indictment of the horror that is and an invitation to the great goodness that may be.
