Product DescriptionOn the face of it, Deuteronomy seems to be a book filled with triumph - the pronouncement of the commandments, the end of the Israelites? long exile, the coming of the Promised Land. But Daniel Berrigan here turns a searching eye toward this text and finds its darker side. Moses, the people?s leader for forty years, is denied entrance to the land he dreamt about. The people desperately create a golden calf to worship even as God is giving Moses the two tablets. The Promised Land, full of milk and honey, is also full of inhabitants - gaining entrance means destroying or driving out a number of its people. Berrigan draws clear parallels between Deuteronomy?s time of mingled triumph and broken law and our own moment in history, uncovering the stories within the story of this complex biblical book. With both great grace and incisive candor, he turns Deuteronomy inside out and makes us look at it - and ourselves - in a fresh light.From Publishers WeeklyLegendary peace activist Berrigan examines the Old Testament book of Deuteronomy through the lens of his personal abhorrence of war in this biblical commentary. Although Deuteronomy is largely the code of laws given to the Jewish people, Berrigan, a Catholic priest, finds something more-a prophetic justification for excoriating those who choose the other god of warfare. Employing poetry and free-flowing streams of prose, he weighs the choice Christians face between Deuteronomy's story and the New Testament gospel. An interminable debate ensues, he writes. Which deity to serve? Too often, he concludes, the choice becomes the god of war, whether by secular leaders claiming to be Christian and blinded by the idols of defense, prosperity or national interests or by bishops who endorse the military actions initiated by political leaders. Berrigan observes that a close connection between crime and consequence runs through Deuteronomy, and he strongly suggests that by going along with the culture of death in the matter of war, Christians may see their religion rotting before their eyes. Thought-provoking reading will be of special interest to those sympathetic to Berrigan's uncompromising political views.(Nov.)Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

As both a Christian poet and writer, he has captured the imagination of a whole generation of seekers from all denominations throughout the world. His vital presence in our midst has been a great grace for us all."Walter Brueggemann "-author of Theology of the Old Testament "Without fail Berrigan makes daring and compelling connections between text and life. He has long pondered the idolatries of our society and knows, from the book of Deuteronomy, that a more excellent way is possible. No Gods but One is a welcome summons at just the right time."James Martin, SJ "-author of My Life with the Saints "Daniel Berrigan is one of the church's great modern-day prophets. In this book he artfully shows how the story of Deuteronomy - which may seem far, far away from our contemporary concerns - is, in fact, packed with meaning for our times. Like all prophets, Father Berrigan speaks in a voice that is by turns poetic, disturbing, radical, encouraging, inspiring, and urgent. Above all, it is a faith-filled voice to which all men and women of goodwill should listen."Publishers Weekly "Legendary peace activist Berrigan examines the Old Testament book of Deuteronomy through the lens of his personal abhorrence of war in this biblical commentary.
