This volume brings together the annual Romero Lectures presented in Camden, New Jersey, one of America's poorest cities. The book not only remembers Romero but evokes his model of ministry and leadership to give direction to some of the thorny social justice issues confronting American Catholics.The essays are by Robert McDermott, John Hogan, Thomas Gumbleton, Gustavo Gutierrez, Helen Prejean, Diana Hayes and Daniel Groody. They address urban problems, liturgy and justice, poverty and war, the preferential option, capital punishment, race and economics, and immigration. Each chapter reminds us of the tough questions behind the option for the poor. Can we as a faith community and institution move beyond high sounding slogans and incarnate the church's social teaching? In these difficult times of war, terrorism and scandal, can we rebuild trust and be a sign of the future announced by Jesus?
