Publisher's Description

Available for the first time in one volume, a classic commentary on the gospels in the spirit of liberation theology.

For many years, the peasants in Solentiname, a remote archipelago in Lake Nicaragua, gathered each Sunday to reflect on the gospel reading. From recordings of their dialogue, this extraordinary document was composed. First published in the 1970s in four volumes, it was immediately acclaimed as a classic expression of liberation theologya radical reading of the Good News of Jesus from the perspective of the poor and oppressed. (It was also banned by the Somoza dictatorship.) Forty years later, now available in one volume, The Gospel in Solentiname retains its freshness and power. Though times may have changed, the message of Jesusas heard by these peasantscontinues to challenge the rulers of our age, and to inspire the poor with the hope of a different world.
