The War of the Gods

Full Product Description

The War of the Gods traces the intimate relationship between religion, politics and social issues in Latin America over the last three decades as Liberation Theology has re-interpreted the vocation of the Catholic Church and as Protestantism has made inroads on traditional Catholic strongholds. In the 1960s Liberation Theology addressed itself to the problems of a continent racked by poverty and oppression. Comprising a network of localized communities and pastoral organizations, it soon became something much more than a doctrinal current. Liberationist Christianity defined itself in a multitude of social struggles, particularly in Brazil and Central America. Many of the most momentous events in the continent's recent history ...the Nicaraguan revolution, the development of the PT (Workers' Party) in Brazil, the tortuous ascent of President Aristide in Haiti and the uprising in Chiapas ...have borne witness to the influence of a distinctive Liberationist Christianity. Michael Lowy proposes a new interpretation of Liberation Theology and of the rival religious projects in Latin America.

The War of the Gods by Michael Lowy was published by Verso Books in July 1996. The ISBN for The War of the Gods is 9781859840023.
