Liberation theologians often confuse salvation with achieving social justice. They present Christ as a political liberator, and they advocate the use of violence to bring about revolutionary change. After an introduction by the editor, this volume begins with a seminal essay written in 1974 by the influential liberation theologian Gustavo Guti�rrez. It continues with the Pope's views on liberation theology expressed first in his 1979 address to Latin American bishops in Puebla, Mexico, and later in addresses in Zaire and Brazil.
