Overview

This is Henri Nouwen's personal account of a pilgrimage to Santiago Atitlán, a Mayan town in the highlands of Guatemala. It was there that an American priest, Father Stanley Rother, was murdered by a death squad in the parish where he served. In traveling to Santiago Nouwen hoped to learn more about this modern martyr, about the faith that drew him there, and the love that held him in place, even when his life was at stake.

Illustrated with black and white photos, this edition of Love in a Fearful Land commemorates the twenty-fifth anniversary of Fr. Rother's death. In commemorating Fr. Stan's witness, it also celebrates the truth that we are all, Christians of the North and the South, members of the same Body of Christ.
