Item Description...
Overview
Nouwen's journey to a Mayan town in Guatemala where he hoped to learn more about the life and faith of Fr. Stanley Rother. This is Henri Nouwen's personal account of a pilgrimage to Santiago Atitlan, 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 threatened. This richly illustrated edition appears on the twenty-fifth anniversary of Fr. Rother's death. In commemorating his witness, it also celebrates the truth that we are all, Christians of the North and the South, members of the same Body of Christ
