Item Description...
The little stories and the traditions that grew up around Saint Martin de Porres of Peru are fascinating and every bit as charming as the stories told of Saint Francis of Assisi. But as Garca-Rivera shows, these deceptively simple stories reveal much more. For the first time Garca-Rivera unpacks these stories, using the semiotic method and insights garnered from the works of Robert Schreiter, Eugene Genovese, and Antonio Gramsci.

To build this method of theological reflection Garca-Rivera addresses such questions as: does an authentic Latin American theology exist? If it exists, where and how can it be expounded? What does Saint Martin de Porres beatification process tell us? How do the little stories reflect and extend the great theological debate of Valladolid in 1550, with Bartolom de las Casas and Juan Gines de Sepulveda arguing whether the Indians were even human beings?

Using the semiotics of culture to delve into these stories, the author provides rich and astonishing insights into the power of the 'little story', told and retold over time by ordinary folk, that make possible the 'Big Story' of universal principles of human reality.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Kindest Of All Saints  Apr 6, 2006
This book is very profound in reference to sociology and the complexities of culture. However, it includes numerous stories and testimonials about the inviolable life and goodwill of St. Martin De Porres. He loved all people as children of God and all animals as creatures of God. Martin De Porres healed, fed and comforted all God's creation ranging from rich men to hapless mice. When I finished the book I realized that Martin De Porres was a spiritual ancestor to Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King and Cesar Chavez. Please purchase this book if you have reverence for all life ! It is both utopian and sanctifying !
