The provocative title of these essays plays on a traditional Catholic slogan: "No salvation outside the church." Insofar as it implies God's response to a world marked by suffering and injustice, then the poor represent an indispensible test, a key to the healing of a sick society. Drawing on the radical hope of Christian faith--the promise of the kingdom of God and the resurrection of the death--Sobrino presents a bold counter-cultural challenge to a "civilization of wealth" that lives off the blood of the poor. Inspired by the witness of Oscar Romero and Ignacio Ellacuria, and the church's preferential option for the poor, Sobrino offers these "prophetic-utopian" reflections on faith and the meaning of discipleship in our time.
