Publisher's Description

Father Ignacio Ellacura­a, SJ, president of the University of Central America, leading Latin American philosopher, and liberation theologian, was assassinated with five Jesuit companions and two women on November 16, 1989. Love That Produces Hope brings together leading authorities on key aspects of Ellacura­a's thought. The book introduces readers to the groundbreaking life and thought of Ignacio Ellacura­a. His biography and writings embody late twentieth-century transformations and tensions that reshaped the life of the Catholic church among the crucified peoples of Central America.

Love That Produces Hope evaluates the significance of Ellacura­a's work, particularly his impact on theology, philosophy, and education. Ellacura­a found hope in his faith that God's grace sustains the tenacious struggle of millions of men, women, and children to nurture those they love in the face of poverty and an uncertain future.

Robert Lassalle-Klein, PhD, is associate professor of theology and philosophy at Holy Names University in Oakland, and the author of several books and articles.

Kevin F. Burke, SJ, PhD, is associate professor of systematic theology and the director of the licentiate in sacred theology program at Weston Jesuit School of Theology. He has written several books and articles, including various works about Ignacio Ellacura­a.

Editorial Reviews

In Love That Produces Hope, Kevin Burke and Robert Lassalle-Klein introduce the reader to Ellacuría through a collection of rich essays, including some authored by the most prominent names in liberation theology and political theology. This collection of essays is particularly valuable for the English-speaking world since there is relatively little written by or about Ellacuría that is available in English. In addition, the comprehensive bibliography is a great asset for anyone wanting to encounter the thought of Ellacuría through primary sources.
Catholic Studies

. . . this is in an outstanding collection of essays.
Theological Studies

This is a rich collection of essays . . . Each author brings his or her valuable insights to the discussion of Ignacio Ellacuría’s philosophical and theological work.
Signs of the Times in the Americas

This significant work serves as an initial introduction for the English-speaking world to liberation theology’s early martyr. Comprehensive, balanced and challenging. The editors, Lasalle-Klein and Burke complete the title by appending an exhaustive bibliography of Ellacuría’s publications. This title is recommended for theological collections.
Catholic Library World

As the inaugural holder of the Ignadcio Ellacuría Chair in Catholic Social Thought, I am thrilled to read Love That Produces Hope. At long last, the Jesuit martyr of El Salvador's philosophical and theological thought is now available to English-speaking readers. Robert Lassalle-Klein and Kevin Burke are to be congratulated for having assembled the best interpreters to help us understand Ellacuría's life, work, and thought. Their essays on the sources and reception of Ellacuría's thought are uniformly informative, insightful, and challenging. The bibliography is an indispensable resource for future studies. I strongly recommend the book for any course on Latin American liberation theology.
