Item description for In the Parish of the Poor: Writings from Haiti by Jean-Bertrand Aristide & Amy Wilentz...

Events in Haiti often proceed in such a rush, with such highs and lows, that it is sometimes difficult to perceive their general direction. At the end of a dizzying and dangerous road to democracy, an election-day massacre suddenly looms like a terrifying rockbloack. The author takes us into the world of the poor, where hope struggles to be born in the midst of horror. His book, written for his friends in Central and Latin America, is meant also for us, "the cold country to the north," whose shadow has fallen so fatefully over Haiti's dismal history.

Publishers Description
The former president of Haiti's writings and sermons on the harsh reality and stubborn hope of the people of Haiti.

Reviews - What do customers think about In the Parish of the Poor: Writings from Haiti?

A Wonderful and Intriguing Read  Jun 5, 2000
As a person who takes an interest in the country of Haiti and its political figures, I was very excited upon discovering Aristide's "In the Parish of the Poor". This book, which includes a wonderful foreword by Amy Wilentz, contains all the intellect and emotional fervor that makes Aristide the highly-respected individual that he is. The book is well-written and even contains some of Aristide's sermons. I am in no means a supporter of Aristide; however, I must highly recommend this book to anyone. I have thoroughly enjoyed it.
Timeless and Touching  Apr 23, 2000
Haiti- 600 miles from Florida, but it may as well be 600 light years! Jean Bertrand Aristide captures that magnificently in "In The Parish of the Poor". As an educator I have used passages from this book in class to provoke discussions on social justice and morality. And as someone who is drawn to Haiti as often as funds allow,I cherish it for its truth. A lot has happened to Haiti since Titid wrote this, but it has a spirit that is timeless.
An inside to the thoughts of liberation-theology  Aug 23, 1998
This book is excellent! Having met Aristide- in Haiti, I know the absolute power of love that Aristide holds in his heart for the people of Haiti - and this book does just that. It gives the reader a look at the problems in Haiti, those that Aristide has experienced, and why he believes he can change the situation there. He gives the reader fact and feeling- true, honest feelings without the flowery-detail. The feelings in this book are human. Aristide calls out to his readers to take heed and see Haiti as a land of people with pride, love, and faith. He lets you see - from his point of view - the atrocities of standing against the powerful government....of what his vision is for Haiti's future and how faith and liberation theology will bring Haiti to a new level. An excellent read- a powerful book- with actual sermons given by Aristide at the end- that might change the reader's view of the society we live in and his/her place in it.
