Promotional Information

Ellacuria was a pioneer liberation theologian until he was murdered in El Salvador for his convictions in 1989 [along with five other Jesuit priests and two women]. Now Kevin Burke presents us with the first comprehensive introduction to his thought. This is an important service since ... Ellacuria has remained largely unknown in English. As Burke's fine book shows us, Ellacuria demonstrates the continuing promise of liberation theology, and the price of living out its consequences. -- Dean Brackley, SJ, author of Divine Revolution: Salvation and Liberation in Catholic Thought Ignacio Ellacuria was a major thinker whom we all should read. Thanks to this fine book by Kevin Burke, the way into Ellacuria's compelling thought and life is made a clear and systematic one. -- David Tracy, Distinguished Service Professor, University of Chicago Divinity School, author of The Analogical Imagination An outstanding contribution ... Rightfully places Ellacuria as one of the major Christian theologians of the twentieth century. -- Maria Pilar Aquino, associate professor of theology and religious studies, University of San Diego

About the Author

Kevin F. Burke, SJ, is acting president and associate professor of systematic theology at the Weston Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley.


A thoroughly researched, carefully presented and truly 'living' discussion of [Ellacuria's] work. Burke advances Ellacuria's theology, even as he is presenting it. Himself clearly moved by 'compassionate reason,' Burke offers us hope that this crucially important lineage of liberative reflection and praxis will continue. Modern Theology A fine comprehensive introduction to the theology of Ignacio Ellacuria ... richly rewarding. Theological Studies The Ground Beneath the Cross is a densely, if carefully, argued and learned book. It should stand the test of time as the standard exposition, in English, of the theology of Ignacio Ellacuria. Journal of Hispanic-Latino Theology
