It is a challenging and life changing account of a man' s courage and committment to justice for his suffering people. It is taken from Bishop Romero's own words; so it is ever more compelling. It requires, however, a knowledge of the historical and political situation of El Salvador in the last forty years of the twenty century, to really understand what Bishop Romero' s is trying to say, and why it is so challenging. It is an indictment of the corrupt and cruel power that chooses to eliminate the opponent rather than dialogue and work together for the common good.
