Description - Liberation Theologies, Postmodernity, and the Americas by Professor Lois Ann Lorentzen

Simultaneously arising out of such diverse contexts as the black community in the United States, grassroots religious communities in Latin America, and feminist circles in North Atlantic countries, theologies of liberation have emerged as a resource and inspiration for people seeking social and political freedom. Over the last three decades, liberation theology has irrevocably altered religious thinking and practice throughout the Americas. Led by voices who raise up their experiences at the margins of social power, liberation theology demystifies the pretensions of the eurocentric. This text provides an examination of liberation theology, arguing that at its very root it is an attempt to rebuild theology in view of the history of massive suffering produced by empire, and to juxtapose theology to the positive affirmation of marginalized communities of faith.
