The unfolding of Paulo Freire's philosophy, uniqueness, and the lens through which he viewed the world, which ultimately brought this gentle spirit of a man onto the world stage, began at a young age in his hometown of Recife, Brazil. Remarkably grounded in the wisdom of humility, yet gifted with a determined strength, deep insight, and perceptive intelligence, Freire not only believed in the human spirit, goodness, and the fostering of a more hopeful world, but was also profoundly committed to challenging individuals and political, educational, and religious structures that perpetuated the status quo. To that same end, this book recounts the life and thought of a remarkable man who appeared at a critical point in history, and whose courageous, prophetic voice of conscience remains extraordinarily relevant.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"If Paulo Freire could read this book, he would certainly be happy with how James D. Kirylo has presented his thought, faithfully and respectfully recreating him without distortion." (Ana Maria Araujo Freire)
"James D. Kirylo's insightful book is a great complement to Paulo Freire's `Letters to Cristina' and Ana Maria Araujo Freire's `Paulo Freire: Uma Historia de Vida [...]' Reading Kirylo's book reminds me, once again, how I feel enormously blessed for having had the opportunity to work and collaborate with Paulo Freire so closely for many years. " (Donaldo Macedo, University of Massachusetts Boston)
"Paulo Freire has cultivated the ground for a long revolution, and James D. Kirylo's outstanding new work has skillfully and with prescient insight illuminated this ground in ways few books on Freire have managed to accomplish [...] Kirylo's book reminds us that while the path made by Paulo Freire was a singular path, it has, over the decades, formed an international hub where travelers worldwide can gather and find rest and replenishment in order to take up again the long walk towards revolution." (Peter McLaren, University of California, Los Angeles)
