This richly illustrated biography, revised and updated in light of his beatification, tells Oscar Romero's courageous story, beginning with his humble origins and his early life as a relatively conservative priest and bishop, to the astonishing transformation that occurred in the last three years of his life.

Embracing the church's "option for the poor," he became a courageous voice for the voiceless, entering a path he knew would lead to his death. It offers a stunning portrait of the gospel challenge for out time.
