Dissident prophets engage in social justice when they stand in the way of choices that hurt people and the earth. Poets enhance the prophetic function by poking through the surface of things, and at times they take unpopular positions in questioning the status quo. These poems are a courageous call to sanity.
This fourth volume has a wide range of resistant poems about nuclear weapons, drones, and violence. It describes occasions through 2013 and 2015 when people were arrested for their high ideals about a non-violent world. It takes off from the previous three volumes of prophetic poetry identifying six significant values: Peace, Justice, Ecology, Openness, Authenticity, and Love.
