Pressestimmen"[A]n introduction that competently places liberation theology in its cultural and religious context, [and] elucidates its roots in the Bible and in Catholic theology." --The Washington Post Book World "Liberation Theology is just the book I've been searching for--unsuccessfully until now--as the basic text for the course I offer on Latin American Liberation Theology. It is everything I need. Concise, well-written, and balanced, it gives some real attention to the critics of Liberation Theology, as any fair text must do." --Harvey Cox, Harvard Divinity School "...a very clear, reliable, and readable introduction to and survey of liberation theology. It is also an introduction to the literature on the subject interwoven with history...[and] Berryman is a very trustworthy interpreter." --Dr. Larry Rasmussen, Union Theological Seminary "The book answers the charge that Liberation Theology is essentially Marxist by indicating to the reader that the use of Marxism is something minor in comparison to a Biblical reading and interpretation in the light of contemporary social and political realities... It advocates the use of theologies of liberation and is addressed to an American audience." --Monsignor Joseph W. Devlin, Department of Religion, LaSalle University "... adds significantly to the documenting and appraisal of a theological movement of lasting importance." --John Raines, Department of Religion, Temple University
