The brothers Berrigan wrote weekly letters to each other throughout their decades of activism for peace and justice. Those letters are published here for the first time, and offer a precious glimpse into the life and times of this famous pair.

An edited volume of correspondence between Daniel and Philip Berrigan (1939-2002), this volume will present excerpts from seven decades of letters between the brothers famed for their social activism, civil disobedience, peacemaking efforts, and sharp critiques of American foreign policy. While many letters address the issues of war and peace, they also touch on other social issues, such as abortion, capital punishment, and politics; on ecclesial issues such as their respective religious orders, prayer, and sacraments; and on their family and personal relationships, including letters sent in the last weeks and months of Philip Berrigan’s life (2002).

Not only a valuable academic resource, this book will also be a treasure for those devoted to the causes of peacemaking and social justice, revealing not only insights into the activism of the Berrigans, but also glimpses of their intense devotion to each other and their unbending faith in the face of great adversity.Daniel Cosacchi;Eric Martin;, Daniel Cosacchi, Eric Martin
