A unique perspective on one of the greatest religious figures of recent history. An in-depth portrait of Oscar Romero, the Fourth Archbishop of San Salvador, based on research of his diaries and sermons and on interviews with most of his surviving relatives, friends, and co-workers.

This biography provides a unique insider/outsider perspective on both Romero and the plight and struggle of Central American immigrants and other migrant and impoverished populations. Torres takes readers into Romero's early life, his seminary formation, and his active ministry, including conflicts with the ruling elites and hierarchy that led to his ultimate martyrdom.

The book concludes with his canonization and the pursuit of justice against his murderers.
