9780664254247: Liberation Theology: An Introductory Guide

In a manner that is vivid and lively, Robert McAfee Brown explains and illuminates liberation theology for North American readers who may have no previous knowledge of this dynamic Christian movement. Growing out of the experience of oppressed people in Latin America, liberation theology lends a transforming power to both the study of the Bible and the Christian duty to work for justice for all God's people. With heartwarming, terrifying, and humorous stories, Brown shows the strength and significance of one of the outstanding developments in religious faith today and for the future.

About the Author:

Robert McAfee Brown was a well-known theologian, writer, teacher, and social activist. He authored many books, including The Bible Speaks to You; Liberation Theology: An Introductory Guide; Reclaiming the Bible; Religion and Violence; Theology in a New Key; and, a novel, Dark the Night, Wild the Sea, all published by Westminster John Knox Press.

From Library Journal:

Brown introduces liberation theology as lived reality, revealing experiences he had in Central America that brought him new understanding of people and Christian community. His trip altered his perspective on commitment and hope, as well as on Columbus and other conquerors, and showed him a deeper encounter with God through justice-making. Brown (Pacific School of Religion) criticizes U.S. policy regarding Central America and encourages Christian witness and risk-taking on behalf of justice. This book makes liberation theology "come alive" by introducing it emotionally and spiritually, rather than as a merely intellectual concept. Recommended for public and seminary libraries.
