About the Author:

David Tombs is a Political Theologian working in Belfast as Lecturer in Reconciliation Studies for the Irish School of Ecumenics, Trinity College Dublin. He has degrees from Oxford University, Union Theological Seminary New York, and London University.

Review:

'This well-written book stands as a significant contribution to liberation theology. In five parts, Tombs chronologically and contextually situates the development and maturation of the discipline in a way that allows students to access and appropriate it. The work is synthetic in that it integrates the sociological, political, historical, and economic realities of Latin America into a survey of both theological and philosophical developments. Two bonuses for the teacher-scholar are the extensive footnotes and excellent bibliography... [Tombs's] masterful interweaving of the social, economic, historical, political, theological, and philosophical realities provides a deeper understanding of the history of Latin America... [Tombs] knows the issues and the debates and discusses them comprehensively.'
Thomas M. Kelly, Theological Studies, June 2004.
