Reviews

To paraphrase the often-used words of Mark Twain, rumours of the death of Liberation Theologies have been greatly exaggerated. This excellent book shows the great variety and the prophetic insight of Liberation Theologies and heralds renewed hope for poor, oppressed and marginalised peoples in all corners of the globe. A must read! - Anthony G. Reddie, Editor, Black Theology: An International Journal, Author, SCM Core Text: Black Theology

This timely collection offers fresh theoretical lenses from an impressive array of theological voices. The authors bring new vitality to traditional liberationist themes. Traci West, Professor of Ethics and African American Studies, Drew University, US

This collection is a welcome addition to the resources for teaching and developing the various liberation theologies around the world. It includes a wide variety of practitioners in the field who deal with both historical and contemporary issues. The voices are unique and the perspectives varied. The forward-looking agenda is just what is needed to counter rumors of the untimely demise of a vibrant field. Mary E. Hunt, Co-Founder, Women's Alliance for Theology, Ethics and Ritual, USA
