Publishers Description Many know Daniel Berrigan for his dramatic defense of the poor and disadvantaged and his defiant protests against war and nuclear weapons. For his daring acts of civil disobedience over the past four decades, he has suffered years in federal penitentiaries and nights in New York City jails. A prize-winning poet and respected interpreter of the Bible, Berrigan now emerges in this debut collection of short fiction as a biting satirist and cultural critic of astonishing moral and aesthetic nuance. In A Sunday in Hell, Berrigan offers twelve incendiary and provocative parables for today's tumultuous times, including "The Hole in the Ground: A Parable for Peacemakers," which exposes the perils of "total victory" in the "war on terror." Published alongside a special selection of Berrigan's autobiographical poems, these fables provide an urgently needed call to conscience, and add dimension to what we know about this extraordinary American dissident, a bellwether of courage and non-violent resistance. Daniel Berrigan has written more than fifty books and has been often nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. A member of the Catonsville Nine and Plowshares Eight, Berrigan continues to speak out against war and the military. He lectures frequently on the Bible and the call to peacemaking. He lives in New York City.
