Gustavo Gutierrez: Spiritual Writings (Modern Spiritual Masters)


Gustavo Gutierrez: Spiritual Writings (Modern Spiritual Masters) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Through the publication of his classic work, A Theology of Liberation, Gustavo Guti rrez, a Dominican priest from Lima, Peru, permanently altered the modern theological landscape, challenging all theologians and the world church to hear the gospel message from the underside of history, the perspective of the poor and oppressed. These selections from his prolific writings, including On Job, We Drink from Our Own Wells, and The God of Life, highlight the deeply spiritual dimension of his work: the encounter with God, the response to suffering, the spirit of contemplation, and the meaning of discipleship.

Book News Annotation:

Peruvian priest Gutiérrez is best known for his groundbreaking Theology of Liberation: History, Politics, and Salvation, first published in English translation in 1973. Here Groody (theology, U. of Notre Dame) collects 76 excerpts from that and his other writings on meeting Jesus Christ, understanding God's mercy, and living in the spirit. More specific topics include forming a Christian community, becoming a disciple, believing in the midst of suffering, liberating the poor, and living the Beatitudes. There is no index.
