The Gospel in Solentiname, Paperback / softback Book

The Gospel in Solentiname Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


In Solentiname, a remote archipelago in Lake Nicaragua, the people gathered each Sunday to reflect together on the Gospel reading.

From recordings of their dialogue, this extraordinary document of faith in the midst of struggle was composed.

First published in four volumes, The Gospel in Solentiname was immediately acclaimed as a classic of liberation theology--a radical reading of the good news of Jesus from the perspective of the poor and the oppressed. (It was also banned by the Somoza dictatorship.)Forty years later The Gospel in Solentiname retains its freshness and power.

Though times may have changed, the message of Jesus--as heard by these peasants--continues to challenge the rulers of our age and to inspire the poor with the hope of a different world.
