Where Is God?: Earthquake, Terrorism, Barbarity, And Hope
By Jon Sobrino
Reflections on the meaning of God and the meaning of the human being in a world of terror.
"Hope does not die---in hope, God is mysteriously present." ---Jon Sobrino
"Takes a hard look at the suffering and violence afoot in the world . . . [and] takes a far more daring approach by discussing human cruelty, indifference, and inequality . . "--Spirituality & Health
Jon Sobrino's latest book takes its starting point from tragedy and violence: a devastating earthquake in El Salvador, the terrorist attacks of September 11, and the subsequent bombing of Afghanistan. The topic of suffering and death has traditionally raised questions about the nature and existence of God. But for Sobrino the primary question is addressed to ourselves: Who are we human beings? What does it mean to be human in a world of inequality, injustice, and barbarism? In examining the cruelty of history from the standpoint of the victims, Sobrino finds a challenge not just to find meaning, but to answer a call to personal conversion, structural change, compassion, and solidarity. Ultimately, Christian faith finds hope in the cross---a cross borne not only by Christ, but by Romero, Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and the poor: "Because of that hope, no matter how hard it is to live through catastrophes, terrorism and barbarity, we cannot rule out the possibility of resurrection."
Jon Sobrino, a Jesuit theologian from El Salvador, is the author of many works, including the award-winning 2-volume christology, Jesus the Liberator and Christ the Liberator.
