Apostle of Peace features over forty essays celebrating the life of peacemaker Daniel Berrigan in honor of his 75th birthday on May 9, 1996. Jesuit priest and activist Daniel Berrigan is one of the most influential Catholic figures of the last fifty years. He has inspired countless people of faith and conscience to oppose war, nuclear weapons and injustice. Contributors to this collection include actor Martin Sheen, Bishop Thomas Gumbleton, author Robert Coles, religious leader Joan Chittister, historian Howard Zinn, theologian Jon Sobrino, poet Denise Levertov, Buddhist leader Thich Nhat Hanh, scripture scholar Megan McKenna, columnist Colman McCarthy, former attorney general Ramsey Clark, Franciscan Richard Rohr, "Sojourners" editor Jim Wallis, and activists Elizabeth McAlister and Philip Berrigan. A long introduction by John Dear sums up Daniel Berrigan's life and message, and invites readers to take up his invitation to become apostles of peace to our culture of war.
