Product Description

Dios, en su infinita misericordia, nos ama tal y como somos. Este libro es una invitación a encontrar esa misma chispa en nuestros corazones.

A partir de los testimonios de pandilleros rehabilitados o en proceso de rehabilitación, Gregory Boyle nos ofrece un retrato de los sectores marginados de la sociedad y los retos y alegrías que enfrentan. Perdón y superación personal son los hilos que nos muestran lo luminosa que es la vida cuando se asume desde el amor incondicional.

En estas páginas, Boyle se adentra en el corazón de quienes son el alma del programa Homeboy en Los Ángeles, y de manera cuidadosa y divertida nos recuerda que, en un mundo cada vez más violento y dividido, la solidaridad y la piedad son una manera única de acercarnos a Dios. También nos muestra cómo, en cada uno de nosotros e independientemente de nuestro pasado, hay un destello de bondad.

Amor incondicional: El poder de la hermandad es un canto a la compasión, a la inclusión y al poder de las segundas oportunidades.

"Este es un libro hermoso, importante y que transporta almas. Está escrito por Gregory Boyle, un sacerdote jesuita en Los Ángeles que ha trabajado con (y amado) miembros de pandillas durante décadas. Este libro trata sobre cómo amar a las personas. Cómo amar realmente a las personas. Y cómo conocer a Dios cuando lo ves. . . . Este es un libro fantástico. Por favor léelo." —Elizabeth Gilbert

"Si buscas inspiración genuina en el mercado, te insto a que leas Amor incondicional (Barking to the Choir) de Gregory Boyle, un libro que muestra cómo son los lugares comunes de la fe cuando se ponen en acción". —Ann Patchett

English Description

In a moving example of unconditional love in dif­ficult times, Gregory Boyle, the Jesuit priest and New York Times bestselling author of Tattoos on the Heart, shares what working with gang members in Los Angeles has taught him about faith, compassion, and the enduring power of kinship.

In his first book, Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion, Gregory Boyle introduced us to Homeboy Industries, the largest gang-intervention program in the world. Critics hailed that book as an "astounding literary and spiritual feat" (Publishers Weekly) that is "destined to become a classic of both urban reportage and contemporary spirituality" (Los Angeles Times). Now, after the suc­cessful expansion of Homeboy Industries, Boyle returns with Barking to the Choir to reveal how com­passion is transforming the lives of gang members.

In a nation deeply divided and plagued by poverty and violence, Barking to the Choir offers a snapshot into the challenges and joys of life on the margins. Sergio, arrested at age nine, in a gang by age twelve, and serving time shortly thereafter, now works with the substance-abuse team at Homeboy to help others find sobriety. Jamal, abandoned by his family when he tried to attend school at age seven, gradually finds forgive­ness for his schizophrenic mother. New father Cuco, who never knew his own dad, thinks of a daily adventure on which to take his four-year-old son. These former gang members uplift the soul and reveal how bright life can be when filled with unconditional love and kindness.

This book is guaranteed to shake up our ideas about God and about people with a glimpse at a world defined by more compassion and fewer barriers. Gently and humorously, Barking to the Choir invites us to find kinship with one another and re-convinces us all of our own goodness.

Author Bio

Gregory Boyle es fundador de las Industrias Homeboy en Los Ángeles, California. Siendo una empresa de más de treinta años, el origen de Homeboy se remonta a cuando Boyle, un sacerdote jesuita con títulos avanzados en inglés y teología, servía como pastor en la iglesia Dolores Mission, en ese entonces la parroquia católica más pobre de Los Ángeles, la cual además poseía la mayor concentración de pandillas en la ciudad. Homeboy se ha convertido en la mayor iniciativa en intervención, rehabilitación y programa de reinserción de pandilleros del mundo, empleando y entrenando a convictos en un amplio espectro de emprendimientos sociales, además de brindar ayuda a miles de hombres y mujeres que cada año atraviesan sus puertas en busca de una vida mejor. El padre Boyle ha recibido el Premio a la Paz en California, el Premio Humanitario del Año por la Fundación James Beard y la Medalla de Cuaresma de la Universidad de Notre Dame. Ingresó al Salón de la Fama de California, y fue nombrado "Champion of Change 2014" por la Casa Blanca. Asimismo, es autor del éxito en ventas del New York Times, Tatuajes en el corazón: El poder de la compasión sin límites.

is the founder of Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles, CA. Now in its 30th year, Homeboy traces its roots to when Boyle, a Jesuit priest with advanced degrees in English and theology, served as pastor of Dolores Mission Church, then the poorest Catholic parish in Los Angeles, which also had the highest concentration of gang activity in the city. Homeboy has become the largest gang-intervention, rehabilitation, and reentry program in the world, and employs and trains gang members and felons in a range of social enterprises, as well as provides critical services to thousands of men and women each year who walk through its doors seeking a better life. Father Boyle has received the California Peace Prize, the James Beard Foundation Humanitarian of the Year Award, and the University of Notre Dame’s Laetare Medal. He was inducted into the California Hall of Fame and named a 2014 Champion of Change by the White House.
