As a first year seminarian I have learned a great deal reading this book about the liberation theology movement. After reading the first 2 chapters I realized that I didn't know what I thought I knew. This book has helped me remove some of the biases that I once had centered around this topic.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
