La violencia del amor

Overview

From the stirring foreword by Henri Nouwen to the last page of Romero’s text, this powerful little volume of eloquent, simple meditations never wastes a word. Yet the real depth of Romero’s message lies in the life they give witness to: the hard life of a man who was martyred for his faith.

Editorial Reviews

Richard McSorley
Oscar Romero was a saint in our midst. His life gives an example of how to share the burdens of the poor and oppressed – and the price we may have to pay for doing so.
Publishers Weekly
Already published in English as The Violence of Love (Plough, 1998), this is a collection of homilies, letters, and articles originally written in Spanish by the late Salvadoran Archbishop Oscar Romero. James R. Brockman, who compiled this edition and translated the English-language edition of the book, is also the author of Romero: A Life. On March 24, 1980, while performing an evening mass, Romero became another victim of the state-sponsored paramilitaries. His murder came as no surprise to most Salvadorans, as Romero had walked a thin line between those who preferred a neutral stance in the ongoing civil war and those who believed that it was the Church's moral and religious duty to condemn state-sponsored terrorism. The book offers readers a clear sense of the violent conflict that engulfed El Salvador at the time and of the paths of peace and forgiveness advocated by Romero. Brockman's useful footnotes and chronological arrangement make this book essential reading for those interested in Romero's life, Salvadoran history, and Liberation theology. Recommended for public, academic, and research libraries, and bookstores. Jose O. Diaz, Ohio State Univ. Lib., Columbus Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

Meet the Author

During his three years as archbishop of San Salvador, Oscar Romero became known as a fearless defender of the poor and suffering. His work on behalf of the oppressed earned him the admiration and love of the peasants he served, a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize, honorary degrees from abroad – and finally, an assassin’s bullet on account of his outspokenness.
