Editor John Dear has collected 40 tributes to the life and ministry of this Jesuit priest, poet, was resister, and prophet in conjunction with his 75th birthday. "If you want to follow Jesus," Daniel Berrigan has said, "you better look good on wood." He has repeatedly demonstrated that he knows of what he speaks. He is one of the foremost peace activists of this century.
Ramsey Clark, Jim Wallis, and Philip Berrigan pay homage to his persistent role as a resister of evil and a truthteller. Other essayists celebrate Berrigan's vocation as a writer of over 40 books of poetry, prose, and drama. Perhaps the best description of this multi-talented servant of God is the one put forward by Joan Chittister when she describes him as "a Christian run amuck."
