The History and Politics of Latin American Theology Vol 2

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 work examines a changed ecclesial setting and the new theological and political challenges for Latin American theology. Observing individual Latin American Theologians through their involvement in social movements and the relationship between the church and civil society, and the role of the church becomes less central within the society.
