Love in a Fearful Land: A Guatemalan Story
"This book is Henri Nouwen's account of his pilgrimage to Santiago Atitlan, a Mayan town deep in the highlands of Guatemala. There an American priest, Father Stanley Rother of Oklahoma City, was murdered by a death squad. In traveling to his parish Nouwen hoped to learn more about this modern martyr, about the faith that drew him there, and the love that held him there - even though his life was at risk. This richly illustrated new edition of Love in a Fearful Land appears on the 25th anniversary of Fr. Rother's death. In commemorating his witness, it also celebrates the truth that we are all, Christians North and South, members of the same Body of Christ."--BOOK JACKET.
