Revised to include new essays as well as reflections on the recent beatification of Oscar Romero.

Jon Sobrino, a Jesuit theologian from San Salvador, worked closely with Archbishop Romero and has spent much of the past thirty-five years since his assassination reflecting on the meaning of his extraordinary life and witness.

Exploring each of these identities in turn, Sobrino sums up his reflections with the conclusion: “Archbishop Romero was a gospel . . . a piece of good news from God to the poor of the worldJon Sobrino;, Jon Sobrino
