*Essential writings by a modern prophet and martyr.

"Romero does not speak from a distance. He does not hide his fears, his brokenness, his hesitations. It is as if puts his arm around my shoulder and slowly walks with me. He shares my struggles. There is a warmth in his words that opens my heart to listen." –Henri Nouwen, from the Foreword

These selections from the sermons and writings of Archbishop Oscar Romero present the essential message of one of the great and holy prophets of modern times. Three short years transformed Oscar Romero, the archbishop of San Salvador, from a conservative defender of the status quo into one of the church's most outspoken voices on behalf of the oppressed. Though silenced by an assassin's bullet in 1980, his spirit—and the vital challenge of his life—lives on.
