Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
While little of this will be new to individuals versed in the works of liberation theology, Brown's colloquial style and clear presentation make it ideal for readers unfamiliar with (or only stereotypically aware of) this approach. He starts by debunking the ``Great Fallacy'' (body/soul dualism) and proceeds to argue that liberation and spirituality are actually two sides of the same coin, given the biblical stress on corporate as well as individual salvation. Arresting insights throughoute.g., that the Lord's Supper is a normative model for all mealsadd to the value. EC
