Beschreibung:

Best known as the leader of the farm workers' struggle and of the Latino civil rights movement, Chávez, like Ghandi and Dr. Martin Luther King, was a deeply religious figure whose faith and spirituality guided his public life.
The Gospel of César Chávez uses the prolific leader's own words to bring attention to his profound faith and the way this faith shaped his leadership.
Once asked to explain how he had sustained himself over so many years of struggle, César Chávez responded: "I don't think I could base my will to struggle on cold economics or some political doctrine. For me, the base must be faith."


In evaluating the life and struggles of César Chávez, one of the most recognized Latino leaders in the United States and the first labor leader to successfully organize and unionize U.S. farm workers, many historians, journalists, and other writers have largely missed one significant factor of his life—his faith and deep spirituality.
The Gospel of César Chávez uses the prolific leader's own words to express his profound faith and the way it shaped his life and leadership.
