A Conversation with Daniel Berrigan

Show Summary Details


James Marsh and Anna Brown met with Daniel Berrigan during the summer of 2008 in his New York City apartment. The point of the meeting was to allow Berrigan to have the “final word” in this volume. A further point to the meeting was that since this conversation as published in this volume is the most recent we have a vantage point for reflecting back with Berrigan on the full trajectory of his life and work. Fifty years after Catonsville, how do things look? Topics covered in the conversation include the Catonsville Nine action, the influence of Thomas Merton and Dorothy Day, the challenge of Berrigan to the Catholic Church and Catholic universities, and the degree to which, in very difficult contemporary times, Christian hope is still possible.
