This book is Henri Nouwen's account of his pilgrimage to Santiago Atitlan, a Mayan town deep in the highlands of Guatemala. There an American priest, Father Stanley Rother of Oklahoma City, was murdered by a death squad. In traveling to Rother's parish, Nouwen hoped to learn more about this modern martyr, about the faith that drew him there, and the love that held him there -- even though his life was at risk. This richly illustrated edition of Love in a Fearful Land appeared on the 25th anniversary of Father Rother's death. In commemorating his witness, it also celebrates the truth that we are all, Christians North and South, members of the same body of Christ.
