Endorsements & Reviews-

"A most believable tract. A most convincing homily. A lovable reading experience."

'The Long Island Catholic'

"This is a beautiful little book in both content and format. Photographs show Dom Helder in action with people. Poetry alternates with prose to get across his message. This is a good way to become acquainted with the thought and the personality of a dynamic Brazilian archbishop noted for his espousal of the cause of poor people everywhere but especially in his native country."

'Concern'

"You give more than a book when you give this book-jewel to a friend. You give a deep insight into life's real meaning."

'Religion Teacher's Journal'

"Camara's brief essays and poems are arresting for their simplicity and depth of vision, and are encouraging because of the realistic yet quietly hopeful tone with which they argue for sustained action toward global justice."

'Commonweal'

Bio(s)-

Dom Helder Camara, one of the world's best-known and beloved contemporary religious figures, served as archbishop of Olinda and Recife in northeast Brazil from 1964 to 1985. As pastor of this huge and poverty-stricken rural area, Dom Helder became spokesperson not only for those in his home archdiocese but for people everywhere who share his conviction that truth and justice can change those structures in the world that oppress and dehumanize. Dom Helder Camara is the author of 'Hoping Against All Hope', 'Questions for Living', and 'Through the Gospel with Dom Helder Camara' (1986 Christopher Award).
