Jeremiah: The World, the Wound of God

Synopsis

"Daniel Berrigan's fiery appreciation of the prophet Jeremiah is "spiritual reading" of the searing sort, for persons and groups to feel anew the biblical flame of social justice, religious courage, and personal witness." "Perhaps no Hebrew prophet speaks so directly to our time as Jeremiah. Perhaps no contemporary can unveil his message and warning as can Daniel Berrigan, whose eloquence and courage, like Jeremiah's, expose the corruption of religious commitment, address national trauma and uncertainty, and proclaim the requirements of true lament and resolve."
