When the Gospel Grows Feet Hope Sings, So Beautiful

Rutilio Grande, SJ, and the Church of El Salvador An Ecclesiology in Context

Graced Encounters across the Color Line


CHRISTOPHER PRAMUK “It is spiritual theology at its most satisfying. His publishers have also produced a book in the same spirit, intended to move the senses as well as the mind. If you want uplift and are not afraid to be turned upside down and inside out, this is the book for you.” Drew Christiansen, SJ S978-0-8146-8210-4 Paperback, 224 pp., $19.95 S978-0-8146-8235-7 eBook, $17.99

“This book is a ‘must read’ for those who want to understand how the church entered into the lives of its people in El Salvador after Vatican II and Medellín through the ministry of Rutilio Grande, SJ. When you begin with Rutilio, his life, his ministry, and his death, then you can understand the period of suffering endured by the prophetic church of El Salvador.” Jon Sobrino, SJ S978-0-8146-8077-3 Paperback, 272 pp., $29.95 S978-0-8146-8086-5 eBook, $26.99
