this book was really interesting. it's philip berrigan's writings from his time in prison. i was interested in reading more about his views on nonviolence and organizing. it was fascinating to read what he thought of prison, and just that, but his whole theological framework around prison. also fascinating and educational to read about how he organized in prison.
