Summary: From the stirring foreword by Henri Nouwen to the last page of Romero's text, this powerful little volume of eloquent, simple meditations never wastes a word. That alone sets it apart from most devotionals on the market. Yet the real depth of Romero's message lies not in his words themselves, poetic as they are. It lies in the life they give witness to: the hard life of a man who was martyred for his insistence that love cannot be shown in word only, but in deeds -- that the Word must become flesh.
