All essential aspects of traditional theology are addressed from this primary perspective.

This landmark work in christology continues the magisterial work the Salvadoran Jesuit began in his earlier work, "Jesus the Liberator".

The principle of mercy : taking the crucified people from the Cross by Jon Sobrino( Book )
5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The essays in Sorbino's latest collection bear on one of the most pressing signs of the times: the existence of a "crucified people," the poor, oppressed and marginalized of our world. Their suffering presents Christian faith with an urgent demand--that we "take them down from the cross." Writing from the Salvadoran context, Sobrino presents a "theology of mercy," reflecting on the principles of mercy and solidarity as the mode of Christian witness and discipleship in a world of conflict and daily crucifixion
Where is God? : earthquake, terrorism, barbarity, and hope by Jon Sobrino( Book )
5 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jon Sobrino's latest book takes its starting point from tragedy and violence: a devastating earthquake in El Salvador, the terrorist attacks of September 11, and the subsequent bombing of Afghanistan. The topic of suffering and death has traditionally raised questions about the nature and existence of God. But for Sobrino the primary question is addressed to ourselves: Who are we human beings? What does it mean to be human in a world of inequality, injustice, and barbarism? In examining the cruelty of history from the standpoint of the victims, Sobrino finds a challenge not just to find meaning, but to answer a call to personal conversion, structural change, compassion, and solidarity. Ultimately, Christian faith finds hope in the cross--a cross borne not only by Christ, but by Romero, Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and the poor: "Because of that hope, no matter how hard it is to live through catastrophes, terrorism and barbarity, we cannot rule out the possibility of resurrection."
