Oscar Romero is one of my heroes. He is indeed a saint. Archbishop Romero had the courage to stand again state terrorism in El Salvador, speaking out when so many others kept silent and speaking on behalf of poor El Salvadorans who were brutalised and murdered by their own government. It is hard to imagine standing against that kind of state terror - death squads, mutilations, rapes, bombings, murders and the torture of his people in El Salvador. The way Archbishop Romero stood against this viol [...]
Back when I was in college, in the Bible survey course I took, we were assigned to read through the three books of Jewish law (Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy) and consider the purpose behind these laws -- for whom were they written and why? When the professor invited us to share our thoughts on this, the first student to respond said confidently that these laws were written to suppress the lower classes and to keep them in line through fear of divine retribution. The professor then asked th [...]
Archbishop Oscar Romero is a fascinating figure to me. I think this is the third book I've read about him. Romero was a "go along to get along" sort of Catholic in El Salvador when a brutal civil war erupted in his country, and tens of thousands of innocent people began to be murdered, raped, tortured, and 'disappeared' by the US backed military dictatorship. When Romero's dear friend, Fr. Rutilio Grande, was murdered not long after Romero became the Archbishop, something fundamental changed in [...]
The story of Oscar Romero is very interesting but this book is poorly put together."The Christian who does not want to live this commitment of solidarity with the poor is not worthy to be called a Christian.""I will not tire of declaring that if we really want an effective end to violence we must remove the violence that lies at the root of all violence: structural violence, social injustice, exclusion of citizens from the management of the country, repression. All of this is what constitutes th [...]
I've been reading various treatments on Oscar Romero, and this one is short and to the point. I hope to write an essay sometime along the lines of "A Conservative Protestant Appreciation of Oscar Romero." As an aside, I think I found John Sobrino's account of Romero's life and transition from "conservative" to the way of the cross as the most jarring, but then that book weakens by the end. This one stays strong for an intro.
Wow! What inspiration. I think there are some relevant ideas from Romeros life and ministry that can be applied to current injustices and violence in the Cities of America.
Helpful overview and commentary to give a broader analysis of Romero's theological development. Romero is my hero.
Inspiring book about an incredible man. I think I dog-eared over twenty of the books 130 pages.
