Overview

This fascinating account of theologian Clodovis Boff's five-month missionary journey among the people of western Brazil offers a unique and inspiring view of a people in the process of liberation. Boff records the day-to-day details of his travels and encounters among the rubber gatherers of the remote jungle regions, with the members of basic Christian communities in small towns, and with the priests and lay leaders engaged in pastoral work among the poor. He shares the life, work, struggles, and concerns of these people engaged in their various tasks. From these observations and reflections one can see everyday experience and theological insight arising one from the other. Feet-on-the-Ground Theology reveals the basic dimensions of grassroots liberation theology, providing a portrait of the church of the poor.
