Overview

The 15th Anniversary edition of the publication in English of the work that more than any other has formed and directed the worldwide discussion of liberation theology.

In addition to re-editing for inclusive language, Fr. Gutierrez himself revised a key section of his masterwork, and added a new essay that reviews the evolution of liberation theology, delineating key themes of the present and future. As he writes in this new essay, "My book is a love letter to God, to the church and to the people to which I belong. Love remains alive, but grows deeper and changes its manner of expression."

What Time magazine has called a "seminal" work, A Theology of Liberation remains the single most lucid, direct and powerful statement of the heart of liberation theology.

For those familiar with the trends in Catholic theology in the last 30 or 40 years this book needs little in the way of introduction. Even those who might be weary of Gustavo Gutierrez's arguments and conclusions are aware of the centrality of his thought in the formation of liberation theology. A Theology of Liberation seeks to connect the message of the Gospel to the experience of the people in Latin America, an experience marked in particular by economic and social oppression. This is an important book to be familiar with, both in terms of its connection to liberation theology and how Gustavo Gutierrez, in particular, tried to make sense of his experience of unjust social systems in many Latin American countries by means of his Catholic faith.
