Towards a Society that Serves Its People Apr 11, 2002
This book displays works of 4 martyred Jesuit priests in El Salvador. The book is written from a perspective of Liberation Theology/Psychology. Not only is it a good summary of each of those arts, it also is an incisive look at society, pertinent not only to a war-torn El Salvador and Central America of many years ago, but also to the world and society now -- perhaps even more so. At times the book is heavy reading -- but well worth the effort. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to understand the world they live in! The fact that the authors were all martyred by assassins' bullets makes the work even more inspiring.
