BOOK REVIEW: Karl Gaspar's 'The Masses are Messiah: Contemplating the Filipino Soul'

Karl Gaspar's latest book, "The Masses are Messiah: Contemplating the Filipino Soul" is a rare book - a significant contribution to the scholarship on babaylans, Filipino struggles for social transformation, and spirituality, long overdue but so difficult to make. Of course, it's no surprise that the author could pull off this scholarly but captivating work. Karl Gaspar's academic background as an anthropologist and sociologist, his grassroots experience of resistance during martial law and beyond, and the wide social network he has built over the years were all a preparation for this timely research. It helps that Karl was CEO of several Mindanao-based institutions, including the controversial Mindanao Sulu Pastoral Conference (MSPC) in the late 1970s, roamed the region as poet, minstrel, and playwright in the early 1980s, and has now put all his tremendous talents to the service of the Redemptorist missions, some of which consist of the poorest communities in Mindanao and elsewhere.
