The Vitality of Liberation Theology
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Nessan moves gracefully from quietism to activism, fatalism to utopia, abstraction to concreteness, developmentalism to social justice, justification by grace to good news for the poor. In our current milieu of violent, scandalous capitalism, Nessan's moral indignation is timelier than ever."
--Eliseo Perez-Alvarez, author of A Vexing Gadfly: The Late Kierkegaard on Economic Matters
"Here, finally, is a book that puts liberation and poverty in theological and social-theory perspective. It is compelling and prophetic. Poverty is not only real and devastating in its many forms, but no serious Christian theology and missiology can do without a vital liberationist account. Highly recommended for both professionals and those in need of a solid introduction."
--Veli-Matti Karkkainen, author of The Doctrine of God: A Global Introduction
