Bob Lassalle-Klein ’74, M.Div ’86 is on sabbatical at Santa Clara University this year (2014-15) and is chair of Religious Studies and Prof of Religion and Philosophy at Holy Names University. He is a co-founder of and began his family with Lynn at the Oakland Catholic Worker, which serves immigrant families. They have three wonderfulchildren, Kate Lassalle-Klein ’16 (21), Rose (19, Seattle U sophomore), and Peter (16, sophomore SJND high school). Bob did his dissertation with Jon Sobrino and just published Blood and Ink: Ignacio Ellacuría, Jon Sobrino, and the Jesuit Martyrs of the University of Central America (2014), which Orbis Books calls "the definitive account," and Kevin Burke describes as, "sweeping in its scope, unsettling in its political and historical implications, and profound in its theological depth." Bob is currently finishing The Spiritual Writings of Jon Sobrino (Orbis) and beginning work on Jesus the Immigrant: Contextual Christology and the Signs of the Times. He has done three edited volumes on Contextual Christology (Orbis 2011); The Galilean Jesus (Special Issue of Theological Studies 2009); and The Thought of Ignacio Ellacuría (with Kevin Burke, S.J., 2006). He serves on the board for the Instituto Hispano of the Jesuit School of Theology; as a consultant for the Graduate Program in Pastoral Ministries at Santa Clara University, and has daughters who participated this summer in university-sponsored service projects in El Salvador and Ghana. Kate has just finished six weeks working with Sr. Peggy O’Neill at the Centro Arte y Paz in Suchitoto supported by a Jean Donovan Fellowship from the Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education at Santa Clara.
