The Philippines, since 1972, has lived under a repressive martial law imposed by President Marcos. In this remarkable series of letters the Bishop of Bukidnon speaks to his people about the growing violations of their political and human rights. The answers, the bishop insists, must come from them and their understanding of the Gospel as commitment, concern, and service.
Surprisingly, perhaps, these letters will be read and understood by Americans as well as Filipinos. Written with powerful integrity, they have the enduring timeliness of St. Paul's "Letters to the Churches" written nearly twenty centuries ago.
