More than thirty years since his assassination in March, 1980, Archbishop Oscar Romero continues to serve as one of the great Christian witnesses of our time. This illustrated biography tells his story, beginning with his humble origins and his early life as a relatively conservative priest and bishop. Only in the last three years of his life, with his consecration as archbishop of San Salvador, did he undergo an astonishing transformation - some have called it a conversion. Embracing the church's "option for the poor," Romero became a courageous voice for the voiceless, embarking on a path he knew would lead to his death. 

This biography reveals both his humanity as well his extraordinary faith and courage. It offers a stunning portrait of the gospel challenge for our time.
