Dios, en su infinita misericordia, nos ama tal y como somos. Este libro es una invitación a encontrar esa misma chispa en nuestros corazones.

A partir de los testimonios de pandilleros rehabilitados o en proceso de rehabilitación, Gregory Boyle nos ofrece un retrato de los sectores marginados de la sociedad y los retos y alegrías que enfrentan. Perdón y superación personal son los hilos que nos muestran lo luminosa que es la vida cuando se asume desde el amor incondicional.

En estas páginas, Boyle se adentra en el corazón de quienes son el alma del programa Homeboy en Los Ángeles, y de manera cuidadosa y divertida nos recuerda que, en un mundo cada vez más violento y dividido, la solidaridad y la piedad son una manera única de acercarnos a Dios. También nos muestra cómo, en cada uno de nosotros e independientemente de nuestro pasado, hay un destello de bondad.

Amor incondicional: El poder de la hermandad es un canto a la compasión, a la inclusión y al poder de las segundas oportunidades.


“Este es un libro hermoso, importante y que transporta almas. Está escrito por Gregory Boyle, un sacerdote jesuita en Los Ángeles que ha trabajado con (y amado) miembros de pandillas durante décadas. Este libro trata sobre cómo amar a las personas. Cómo amar realmente a las personas. Y cómo conocer a Dios cuando lo ves. . . . Este es un libro fantástico. Por favor léelo. ” —Elizabeth Gilbert

"Si buscas inspiración genuina en el mercado, te insto a que leas Amor incondicional (Barking to the Choir) de Gregory Boyle, un libro que muestra cómo son los lugares comunes de la fe cuando se ponen en acción". —Ann Patchett

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

In a moving example of unconditional love in dif­ficult times, Gregory Boyle, the Jesuit priest and New York Times bestselling author of Tattoos on the Heart, shares what working with gang members in Los Angeles has taught him about faith, compassion, and the enduring power of kinship.


In his first book, Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion, Gregory Boyle introduced us to Homeboy Industries, the largest gang-intervention program in the worldCritics hailed that book as an “astounding literary and spiritual feat” (Publishers Weekly) that is “destined to become a classic of both urban reportage and contemporary spirituality” (Los Angeles Times). Now, after the suc­cessful expansion of Homeboy Industries, Boyle returns with Barking to the Choir to reveal how com­passion is transforming the lives of gang members.

In a nation deeply divided and plagued by poverty and violence, Barking to the Choir offers a snapshot into the challenges and joys of life on the margins. Sergio, arrested at age nine, in a gang by age twelve, and serving time shortly thereafter, now works with the substance-abuse team at Homeboy to help others find sobriety. Jamal, abandoned by his family when he tried to attend school at age seven, gradually finds forgive­ness for his schizophrenic mother. New father Cuco, who never knew his own dad, thinks of a daily adventure on which to take his four-year-old son. These former gang members uplift the soul and reveal how bright life can be when filled with unconditional love and kindness.

This book is guaranteed to shake up our ideas about God and about people with a glimpse at a world defined by more compassion and fewer barriers. Gently and humorously, Barking to the Choir invites us to find kinship with one another and re-convinces us all of our own goodness.
