Endorsements & Reviews-

"There is a seismic shift taking place in the foundations of theology, and its epicenter is Latin America. Liberation theology is no fad, but a revolution in the very terms of theological work. It locates the ultimate questions not in meaning but survival; not feeling justified but in doing justice; not in belief in God but in the critique of idolatry; not in theodicy but anthropodicy; not in spiritualism but in the spirituality of the material; and most important least understood and observed of all, not in idealist theorizing but in historical praxis. Even where their way is not our way, we need to listen to what they have learned. These essays make an excellent listening-post."
- Dr. Walter Wink, Professor of Biblical Interpretation, Auburn Theological Seminary
