In A Passion for God, J. Matthew Ashley edits and translates the most important of Metz's recent essays previously unavailable in English.

Archbishop Romero : memories and reflections by Jon Sobrino( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jon Sobrino, a Jesuit theologian from San Salvador, worked closely with Archbishop Romero and has spent much of the past thirty-five years since his assassination reflecting on the meaning of his extraordinary life and witness. In a moving personal memoir, Sobrino describes how Romero (by reputation a timid, conservative prelate) emerged as the outspoken champion of the poor and suffering people of El Salvador. He then places Romero in the context of the wider church: as believer, as archbishop, as Salvadoran, as prophet, as martyr, as inspiration for theology. Exploring each of these identities in turn, Sobrino sums up his reflections with the conclusion: “Archbishop Romero was a gospel . . . a piece of good news from God to the poor of the world.” (Publisher)

Hope against hope : Johann Baptist Metz and Elie Wiesel speak out on the Holocaust by Ekkehard Schuster( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

There are probably no two men of such stature who can speak to the Holocaust as Christian theologian Johann Baptist Metz, author of A Passion for God and Jewish writer, Nobel laureate and human rights activist, Elie Wiesel, author of Night. One was drafted into the German army at the age of fifteen; the other was interned at Auschwitz. Both came from upbringings of deep faith, only to have their lives broken by the horrors they witnessed during the war. Both share the sense that the Holocaust is a rift in history itself, after which nothing could ever be seen in the same way as before. Yet for both, there is hope ... "nonetheless."

The university and finding God in all things by James Matthew Ashley( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"While St. Ignatius did not found the Jesuits with the explicit idea of establishing and operating colleges and universities, this is probably the accomplishment for which they are best known today. But what are the connections between Ignatian spirituality and the multi-faceted work of a modern college or university? This lecture draws on Karl Rahner and Ignacio Ellacuria -- two 20th century Jesuits who worked in very different settings -- to illuminate this important issue."--McDevitt Center web site (viewed September 2, 2014)
