In his acclaimed memoir, 'Revolution from the Heart', O'Brien described his personal journey as a priest and the steps that led him to share the struggle - and the fate - of the poor on the island of Negros in the Philippines. In 'Island of Tears, Island of Hope', he wrestles with the form that commitment ought to take. The desperate plight of Negros's sugar workers cries to heaven for revolutionary change. But what are the appropriate means for Christians? While weighing the church's traditional defense of violence in a just cause, O'Brien outlines a case for active nonviolence. In focusing on the dilemma before him, he speaks to all Christians living in a world of revolution.
