"If I had just one book to recommend as a general introduction for adoption as a textbook on courses on political or liberation theology, it would be Professor Chopp's The Praxis of Suffering. The clarity and depth of her analyses are unsurpassed. Not only does she raise the central theological issues posed by contemporary political and liberation theologies, but she also throws new light on them, thereby creatively contributing to contemporary theology."
-- Francis Schuessler Fiorenza, Harvard Divinity School
"Juxtaposing Latin American liberation theology and European political theology, Rebecca Chopp has produced an uncommonly clear and passionate book. The result is a fresh contribution to the theology which, if it is to be faithful to the methods of liberation and political theologies, has to be done in our own peculiar social and economic context. There will be many readers who learn for the first time from this book how crucial liberation theology is for the future of our own churches."
-- M. Douglas Meeks, Vanderbilt University
"More than any other North American work I know this book wrests from us the realization that Euroamerican theology is inescapably confronted with a paradigm shift from Newtonian to Einsteinian physics. It skillfully interprets what is going on at this time in European political theologies and Latin American liberation theologies."
-- Frederick Herzog, Duke University
