From the stirring foreword by Henri Nouwen to the last page of Romero's text, this powerful little volume of eloquent, simple meditations never wastes a word. Yet the real depth of Romero's message lies not in his words themselves, poetic as they are. It lies in the life they give witness to* the hard life of a man who was martyred for his faith. Thus this book gives more insight, perhaps, than any biographical account of his life. Short, readable passages make this collection especially suitable for daily reflection or devotions.

During his three years as archbishop of San Salvador, Oscar Romero became known as a fearless defender of the poor and suffering. His work on behalf of the oppressed earned him the admiration and love of the peasants he served, a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize, honorary degrees from abroad - and finally, an assassin's bullet on account of his outspokenness.
-Publisher

The Violence of Love is a powerful collection of extracts from Romero's homilies, letters, and articles. Each of these passages gives insight into the mind and heart of the man behind them, more insight, perhaps, than any biographic account of his life. They show a man not afraid to expose his weakness, a man whose tremendous faith and hope call us to repentance and renewal.^Originally addressed to the people of El Salvador, Romero's words speak to all people, passionately decrying injustice and violence, exhorting to peace and forgiveness, and inviting all to help build a new, just society. Chronologically arranged, the selections reflect Romero's own spiritual transformation and call us to experience a similar revolution of the heart.^Romero was martyred for his insistence that following Christ cannot be relegated to the spiritual realm. He did not die in vain; the people of Central America say his spirit lives on in them. As their struggle for justice and dignity intensifies, his words take on a renewed urgency.^Short, poetic passages make this collection excellent reading for daily reflection and renewal.
