Overview

One of Daniel Berrigan's best works, Minor Prophets, Major Themes, offers poetic, insightful commentary on the books of Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachai. From his own experience in the prophetic struggle to end war and injustice, Berrigan brings these ancient texts to new life and uses them to shed light on the life and death struggles for justice and peace today. The author takes these often neglected prophetic works and shows how they speak to us with even greater urgency, pushing us to become a prophetic people, to take up the major themes of justice, disarmament, nonviolence, compassion, and peace. There is simply no other commentary like it.
