    Duane,

    Thanks for the book review! I found it in our local library system and have ordered it. I do remember reading a bit about Archbishop Romero I think it was in the 80s.

    I mean, if you’re going to get your hands dirty, and if we’re extensions of the Incarnation, sounds like even someone like Romero was just living
    it out.

    I was much younger when the worst of the violence in El Salvador (literally, The Savior-how ironic!) was being played out. Families arrived weekly at the school where I taught, leaving their shell-shocked children with us for education while they scrambled to find work. Bishop Romero seemed to be the one bright light in the country, and then he was gunned down. I will need to read the book to learn more about him.

    You will find the life of Oscar Romero to be instructive in ways that you cannot even imagine. His writings tell you who he is…

    Oscar Romero was appointed as archbishop because he was considered conservative and “safe”. The journey that he took spiritually in the space of just a few years is a remarkable story.

    Anybody else see the vast gulf of difference between Romero and Franklin Graham?

    Not even in the same universe…

    Thanks for this Duane.

    I have a rather tall holding pattern of books I want to read, as well as some required reading that I am working through. This book will definitely be placed in the pattern.

    “Let my blood be a seed of freedom.”

    I appreciate your work on this http://www.themartyrsproject.com
