Overview

What are the prospects for liberation theology and the social change it espouses? What can liberation theologies learn from each other?

Writing from a variety of social locations—the African American community, the feminist struggle, and tensions within Europe, North America, and Latin America—these exciting and enlightening thinkers reflect on the vastly changed context of and challenges to liberation. Yet they find common concerns and cause. They espouse religious reflection that attends closely to those pushed to the margins (even though on the surface things seem to be improving), to shifting structures of oppression, and especially to global economic structures as they affect specific locales.

For all those interested in the survival and growth of justice-oriented religious commitment, this volume signals concrete and exciting new directions for thought and action.
