Product Description

When Archbishop Oscar Arnulfo Romero of San Salvador was assassinated in March of 1980 while offering Mass, he joined tens of thousands of hs countrymen killed in the conflict that engulfed the small Central American nation. Using materials not available previously, this book tells the story of the archbishop's courageous struggle- in the face of physical threats and the opposition of some of his fellow churchmen- to demand justice for the poor and an end to the violence that eventually claimed his life. Drawing on Romero's own writings, sermons, and diaries, author James Brockman offers a complete and unforgettable portrait of a modern hero and martyr who was the "voice of the voiceless."

Publisher's Description

It is twenty-five years since Oscar Romero, the prophetic archibishop of San Salvador, was assassinated while celebrating Mass. In death he joined tens of thousands of his fellow Salvadorans, killed in the conflict that engulfed his small Central American nation. In the years since then, his reputation and significance have only grown. Today the very name Romero invokes the church's costly option for the poor, the gospel challenge to confront injustice, the Christian call to discipleship in a world of conflict, and a new face of holiness for our time. First published in 1989, James Brockman's biography remains the definitive portrait of the modern hero and martyr who became "a voice of the voiceless."
