about

The presence of the Holy Spirit runs throughout the Scriptures, from the story of Creation, through the inspiration of the prophets, the incarnation and mission of Jesus, and the birth of the church at Pentecost. But as Leonardo Bo shows, the Spirit is also interwoven in the mysterious origins of the universe. And that Spirit continues to be revealed through the history of humanity—in the spirit of renewal, change, and prophecy,in the history of the church, and in the struggles of our own time.

For Boff, this theme takes on special urgency in a time of ecological peril, religious conflict, and oppression of the poor. As Boff writes, when the Spirit comes, “the corpses are filled with life and the wilderness becomes a garden. the poor are granted justice, the sick are restored to health, and we who are all sinners receive forgiveness and grace. is is our faith, and more than that, it is our undying hope.”

Leonardo Boff, who lives in Brazil, is the author of over sixty books, including Francis of Rome & Francis of AssisiChristianity in a Nutshell, Jesus Christ Liberator, and Cry of the Earth, Cry of the Poor. In 2001 he received the prestigious Right Livelihood Award.
