More About this Book
This book is an account of a ten-day visit Nouwen made to the parish of Santiago Atitlán in Guatemala at the invitation of Father John Vesey, a friend. Vesey was the priest sent to replace Father Stan Rother who was murdered on July 28, 1981. Nouwen is accompanied by Peter Weiskel, a friend and co-worker, who contributes photographs of the trip. The book is “about the life of a martyr and the man who took his place.”
