The History and politics of Latin American Theology Vol 3

Full Product Description

This book at its core examines the history and the politics of Latin America. In this third volume the author explores the contribution of major Latin American Theologians to contemporary politics. Within this context there has been a rediscovery of the fluid and sometimes contradictory relationship between religious practice and practice of politics. This is because of those with a religious belief were forced to respond to the crisis of politics. Seeing there beliefs and practice pushed to the limit by the violation of human rights and the absolutist government.

This volume focuses on the periphery, or marginalized, where Liberation Theology has always found its niche and inspiration, looking not only at individual theologians but at theological themes that are central to the development of Latin American theology for the twenty-first century.
