Item description for Genesis: Fair Beginnings, then Foul by Daniel Berrigan...

Overview
Daniel Berrigan is not an academic Scripture scholar searching for an (always elusive) 'original meaning' of the text. His concern is for the significance of the text to us--in the here and now [He] has long been known to be a prophet, someone who courageously speaks God's will for our warring world For Daniel Berrigan, Genesis speaks to our time and our world " For seven years, Daniel Berrigan pondered the themes, meanings, contradictions, and implications of the Bible's most well-known and well-cherished "Book of Beginnings." In light of the escalating violence, military occupations, and global acts of terrorism that have characterized the beginning of our twenty-first century, Genesis: Fair Beginnings, then Foul yields both sorrowful and hopeful reflections as Berrigan walks his readers through the Scripture, searching for stories of ancestry and origins that can "shed a measure of light on dark days." Bringing together lively midrash, biblical exegesis, and stirring social and political critique, Daniel Berrigan marries the keen eye of a biblical scholar with the heart and words of a poet revealing for today's generations the book of Genesis, in all of its aspects, fair and foul.
