From the stirring foreword by Henri Nouwen to the last page of Romero's text, this powerful little volume of eloquent, simple meditations never wastes a word. Yet the real depth of Romero's message lies not in his words themselves, poetic as they are. It lies in the life they give witness to: the hard life of a man who was martyred for his faith. Thus this book gives more insight, perhaps, than any biographical account of his life. Short, readable passages make this collection especially suitable for daily reflection or devotions.

Three short years transformed Romero, archbishop of San Salvador, from a conservative defender of the status quo into one of the churchs most outspoken voices of the oppressed. Though silenced by an assassins bullet, his spirit--and the challenge of his life--lives on.Review:
Richard McSorley, Georgetown Center for Peace Studies Oscar Romero was a saint in our midst. His life gives an example of how to share the burdens of the poor and oppressed - and the price we may have to pay for doing so. Presbyterian Outlook The excerpts gathered in this volume have a luminous power...It is the strange power of preaching fed by love for God, church, friend, and foe. Robert McAfee Brown, Pacific School of Religion These homilies reveal lines of poetic beauty describing a cruel and ugly world...Here is indomitable courage and utter humility. Here is a message of hope.
