4.0 out of 5 stars Oscar Romero, 3 Jun. 2010
C. Kidd (Dibden, Hampshire, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: OSCAR ROMERO (Modern Spiritual Masters) (Paperback)
I've been challenged to read more about those who've made a massive difference to their community, so I enjoyed reading Oscar Romero (Modern Spiritual Masters) by Marie Dennis, Renny Golden, and Scott Wright. The book is short at just 120 pages, and is a series of small essays as follows:

* The centrality of the poor
* The historical demands of the gospel
* The heart of the poor
* The testimony of the martyrs
* The word remains

The essays focus on a development of Romero's theology and rely heavily on quotes from his sermons, letters and other sources to describe the development of his thinking.

When I was a young teenager my youth leader showed us a video of Romero's life which really inspired me so it was interesting to read some of the thinking behind the man. This isn't a biography, but equally this isn't just theology, this is the story of a man who truly lived out his faith.
