Faculty Book Talk with Bob Lassalle-Klein, Thurs, 11/12, 3:30-5pm in the Library's Glass Lounge:
“Blood and Ink: Archbishop Oscar Romero and the Jesuit Martyrs as Collateral Damage in What the Pentagon Calls a U.S. “Pact with the Devil.”
Bob Lassalle-Klein recently published Blood and Ink: Ignacio Ellacuría, Jon Sobrino, and the Jesuit Martyrs of the University of Central America (2014). Orbis Books calls it “the definitive account” and Kevin Burke describes as, “sweeping in its scope, unsettling in its political and historical implications, and profound in its theological depth.”
Bob is Professor of Religion and Philosophy and coordinator of Religious Studies at HNU and recently completed a sabbatical at Santa Clara University. He is also co-founder and serves on the board of the Oakland Catholic Worker, which provides hospitality to immigrant families. He and his wife, Lynn, began their family there and have three wonderful children (2 in college!) Bob’s sabbatical projects included The Spiritual Writings of Jon Sobrino (Orbis) and early work on Jesus the Immigrant: Contextual Christology and the Signs of the Times.
Copies of Blood and Ink are available for checkout. Light nibblies will be served.
