Despite the fact that the theological gains of Latin American Liberation Theology (LALT) have been incorporated into several theologies around the world, many North Atlantic evangelicals still consider LALT a heresy. The underlying reason for the lack of positive engagement between North Atlantic Evangelical Theology in general-and American Evangelical Theology in particular-and LALT is the mistaken perception that LALT and evangelical theology are necessarily contradictory. In Evangelicals and Liberation Revisited, Joćo Chaves analyzes instances of the evangelical-liberationist interaction and examines the generally suspicious responses given to LALT by North Atlantic Evangelicals. Evangelicals who think of LALT as a heresy have failed to look not only into the diversity that exists among liberationists, but also into the different theological expressions within their own movement. Joćo Chaves argues convincingly that if evangelicals think about both liberation theology and their own theological commitments critically, then they will be able to recognize that LALT can be an indispensable ally in their commitment to following God.

Book Description Wipf & Stock Publishers, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Description: Despite the fact that the theological gains of Latin American Liberation Theology (LALT) have been incorporated into several theologies around the world, many North Atlantic evangelicals still consider LALT a heresy. The underlying reason for the lack of positive engagement between North Atlantic Evangelical Theology in general--and American Evangelical Theology in particular--and LALT is the mistaken perception that LALT and evangelical theology are necessarily contradictory. In Evangelicals and Liberation Revisited, Joćo Chaves analyzes instances of the evangelical-liberationist interaction and examines the generally suspicious responses given to LALT by North Atlantic Evangelicals. Evangelicals who think of LALT as a heresy have failed to look not only into the diversity that exists among liberationists, but also into the different theological expressions within their own movement. Joćo Chaves argues convincingly that if evangelicals think about both liberation theology and their own theological commitments critically, then they will be able to recognize that LALT can be an indispensable ally in their commitment to following God. Endorsements: "Can Latin American liberation theology and North Atlantic evangelicalism complement one another? Yes, says this Brazilian evangelical theologian in this succinct and incisive analysis. Chaves' sensitive reading offers a crisp history of liberation theology, breaks down misconceptions, and offers exciting new possibilities of weaving together two seemingly disparate perspectives. This book makes a great contribution that richly repays exploring." --David E. Garland, Dean and Professor of Christian Scriptures, George W. Truett Theological Seminary, Baylor University "The good news of salvation and liberation lies at the heart of the gospel. Both evangelicals and liberationists concerned with the message of liberation and salvation should be, in spite of differences, conversation partners. This book creates an important contribution to starting such a dialogue, and as such, is a must-read for both evangelicals and liberationists." --Miguel A. De La Torre, Professor of Social Ethics and Latino/a Studies, Iliff School of Theology "Joćo Chaves builds a bridge that needed to be built--between liberation theology and evangelical theology. Each has much to gain from the other once obstacles of misunderstanding are removed, and that is exactly what Joćo Chaves does in this short, clear, and needed book." --Brian McLaren, author of A New Kind of Christianity "It is often assumed that liberation theology, as developed in Latin America, has nothing in common with evangelical theology. Joćo Chaves, however, suggests there is scope for sympathetic dialogue between the two. Because they share a concern for social transformation, they may even be compatible." --David Bebbington, Professor of History, University of Stirling "In a lucid and enjoyable text, Joćo Chaves revisits the debate between evangelicalism and liberation theology, making a strong case against hypothetical incompatibility between these two schools. Drawing on a vast number of sources and rejecting common stereotypes, Chaves points to the existing plurality and relevant developments in both camps, highlighting nuanced approaches that bring evangelicalism and liberation theology closer to each other." --Raimundo C. Barreto Jr., Director of the Division on Freedom and Justice, Baptist World Alliance About the Contributor(s): Joćo Chaves is Adjunct Faculty at the Baptist University of the Américas, San Antonio, Texas. He has degrees in cross-cultural studies, biblical studies, and theology. A native Brazilian, Joćo lives in South Texas with his wife, Paula, and their kids, Jonathan and Rebecca.
