Dr. Brennan Hill delivers brief biographies on various individuals who fought the evils of social injustice:

  • Jean Donovan, a lay missionary martyred in El Salvador
  • Sr. Helen Prejean, advocate against the death penalty and author (and the only person of this group still living)
  • Sr. Dorothy Stang, an advocate for the poor who was martyred in Brazil
  • Fr. Pedro Arrupe, former superior general of the Jesuits
  • Thomas Merton, a Trappist monk and author
  • St. Maximilian Kolbe, who was martyred by the Nazis
  • Cardinal Joseph Bernardin, former archbishop of Chicago
  • and the Venerable Pope John Paul II, the third-longest serving pope
Endnotes cite various sources about or by the subjects of the biographies.

Dr. Brennan R. Hill is professor emeritus in the theology department at Xavier University in Cincinnati and the author of 8 Freedom Heroes: Changing the World with Faith and 8 Spiritual Heroes: Their Search for God. This inspiring, thought-provoking book is highly recommended to those interested in saints or heroic Christians.
