Here for the first time is a systematic survey of the principal liberation theologians from Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Exposing the rich variety of Third World liberation theologies, the author highlights points of agreement and divergence in approaches and context, and critically assesses the most often heard criticisms of liberation theology. With its companion volume, 'Third World Liberation Theologies: A Reader', this survey represents the most comprehensive introduction, in any language, to what may well be the most significant theological development of this century.
