Overview

Daniel: Under the Siege of the Divine is a powerful, poetic commentary on one of the Bible's most politically charged books by one of America's greatest peacemaking prophets, Daniel Berrigan. Using the insights he has gained from a lifetime of nonviolent resistance to war and empire, Berrigan walks us through these ancient biblical stories of nonviolent resistance to war and empire, pointing out how we can learn from Daniel and his friends to keep the faith, stay hopeful, and resist every war, injustice, and empire today. It is not only one of Berrigan's best books, but one of the best commentaries on the book of Daniel. Through the scripture and the author's life, we discover the power and duty of civil disobedience to the culture of war and divine obedience to the God of peace.
