Reviews - What do customers think about The Desert Is Fertile?

This book, first published around thirty three years ago and passing through numerous reprints as evidenced in a search of this mighty this site, speaks to us more powerfully now than ever regarding the strength of God's love among the poor bringing greater influence and power than all multicorporations and warmongers.

But that is to give too great a political emphasis to the pure Gospel message of GOd's peace and justice which it contains. It only rings from an earlier generation when the great Dom Helder Camara necesarilly for those times reviles the USSR and Red China as well. Now the USSR is no more and China's communism merely serves as slave factory for Walmart's and other multi-national capitalist corporations.

But that is to give too political an aspect to this pure and ideal Good News to the poor and the powerless and the oppressed and the victims. That only brings too secular a note to this divine accounting of the power of God's peace and love to act within our world despite any and all materialist forces arrayed against us.

We must now read this book carefully page by page tearfully and in joy as we remember the Beatific Vision of Christ's Kingdom of Peace and Justice and Freedom from all oppression, a Kingdom founded upon the firm and permanent rock of peace, and compassion and of Love, the fruition of the Gospel mission of Jesus Christ.

Filled with wonderful black and white photographs of Dom Helder Camara as he preaches among the poor, this book reads as beautifully, as challengingly, as any great Spiritual Work, as any prophetic book, and concludes with the Prayer of Saint Francis which has since become so well known.

Upon reading this book you will wonder why Dom Helder Camara himself has not yet been declared Santo Subito, and you will thirst for more of his works and writings, such as Spiral of Violence or Me llaman el obispo rojo: Dom Hélder Camara (C3S) or The Church and Colonialism: The Betrayal of the Third World or Revolution Through Peace [World Perspectives Vol. 45] or Into Your Hands Lord, etc. etc.

But this present slender volume is all you will ever need, in Faith, in Hope, in Charity for our journey to the Kingdom. May we get there altogether in the end.

Please read this book, and know filling your faithful heart the Spirit of Hope and of Consolation, and of God's Everlasting Love, and receive the courage and strength to act.
