Item description for Witnesses to the Kingdom: The Martyrs of El Salvador and the Crucified Peoples by Jon Sobrino...

For Jon Sobrino, a Jesuit theologian of El Salvador, it is impossible to write about Christian faith without acknowledging the witness of martyr, their gift and challenge to the church. For twenty five years, his work has been shaped by the reality of martyrdom the death of Archbishop Romero, the four North American churchwomen, and the massacre of his own Jesuit community. But the death of these particular witnesses represents a much wider number of poor and faithful: the "crucified peoples" who carry Christ's cross throughout history. These essays on the role and meaning of martyrdom contain some of Sobrino's most powerful writing, including poignant personal memories of Archbishop Romero and of his Jesuit brothers, and reflections on their legacy for the church.

Publishers Description
Invokes the memory and the challenge of the martyrs of El Salvador, including Sobrino's friends and colleagues of the Central American University and the poor and nameless who continue to suffer today.

Reviews - What do customers think about Witnesses to the Kingdom: The Martyrs of El Salvador and the Crucified Peoples?

Witnesses to the Kingdom The Martyrs of El Salvador and the Crucified Peoples  Mar 15, 2008
This book is a Must" read for those readers who are interested in the past recent history of the bloody conflicts in Central America, with the focus being on the martyred Jesuits, their housekeeper and daughter , the 4 martyred US Church women and the countless others who were tortured, and killed in El Salvador.
The author Jon Sobrino, SJ provides an in depth analysis of the reasons behind the massacres, He also gives to us his own personal reflections regarding Archbishop Romero and expresses for us in a very personal manner what the loss of this Bishop was to him personally and to the Church and above all to the poor. He gives a very moving theological presentation - in layman's terms - of what the Churches must become - "The Church of the Poor".
