Item Description...
Overview
"I have come to proclaim good news to the poor..." (Luke 4:18) The provocative title of these essays plays on a traditional Catholic slogan: "No salvation outside the church." But as Fr. Sobrino notes, salvation has many dimensions, both personal and social, historical and transcendent. Insofar as it implies God's response to a world marked by suffering and injustice, then the poor represent an indispensable test, a key to the healing of a sick society. Drawing on the radical hope of Christian faith-the promise of the Kingdom of God and the resurrection of the death-Sobrino presents a bold counter-cultural challenge to a "civilization of wealth" that lives off the blood of the poor. Inspired by the witness of Oscar Romero and Ignacio Ellacuria, and the church's preferential option for the poor, Sobrino offers these "prophetic-utopian" reflections on faith and the meaning of discipleship in our time.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Value of the insights  Jun 1, 2009
The author shares a lifetime of experience in Latin America, and brings together solid theology plus the lived experience of Father Ellacuria and Archbishop Romero in a memorable series of essays. One of the values is that although the author thoroughly deals with values, the product of his writing is not seen as a political diatribe.
 
Don't forget the Poor.  Sep 7, 2008
Jon Sobrino writes what the first world is unwilling to
read. He gives the USA a gantle painting of our society.
If our consciousness if up to date it will be a hard reading
for us of the USA. He paints a beautiful picture of the poor
in Central,South America, and Africa. A poor that we do not experience here in teh USA. Even the Churches of the FIrst WOrld have a very
difficult time understand the place of the poor in refernce to
Jesus. A must read.
Fr. William Forst AUthhor of "If Aristotle Ran the Catholic Church'.
 
Very good book on liberation theology  Jul 26, 2008
I think Jon Sobrino is one of the few modern writers who truly understand the gospel. This is probably his best book. It lays out a challenge for us first world rich Christians, but probably one we cannot meet. It gives us glimpse of where we need to go, and encouragement to take a few steps along that path.
