These selections from the sermons and writings of Archbishop Oscar Romero share the message of a great holy prophet of modern times. Three short years transformed Romero, archbishop of San Salvador, from a conservative defender of the status quo into one of the church’s most outspoken voices of the oppressed. Though silenced by an assassin’s bullet, his spirit—and the challenge of his life lives on. 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 rea

Many volumes have been written about the Great Depression of 1929-1941 and its impact on the lives of millions of Americans. Historians, economists and politicians have all combed the wreckage searching for the “black box” that will reveal the cause of the calamity. Sadly, all too many of them decide to abandon their search, finding it easier perhaps to circulate a host of false and harmful conclusions about the events of seven decades ago. Consequently, many people today continue to accept critiques of free-market capitalism that are unjustified and support government poli

Imagine being able to travel in an instant to wherever you want to be! The universe becomes your playground. Thought becomes expression. This is science fiction. Maybe it shouldn’t be, at least not mentally.The novel is about a space voyage to Alpha Centauri, the nearest solar system to our own. It starts as a high tech voyage, and then becomes much more than that. It links up with a future that is moving backwards. It also comes upon a present that has no future, but for which a future is created that opens up a sphere without limits for humanity. Of course, being able to ’travel&
