Liberation Theology and Sexuality
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2006 - Religion - 192 pages
Liberation Theology and Sexuality is a book about 'doing Liberation Theology in Latin America' in the Twenty First Century. The style of doing theology remains the same, but this book reflects the work of a new generation of liberation theologians developing a theology that offers a wider and more complex critique of reality, with new perspectives on issues of sexuality, race, gender, culture, globalization and new forms of popular religiosity. Liberation Theology and Sexuality shows how Christianity in Latin America needs to take into account issues concerning sexuality and poverty, together with traditional religiosity and culture when reflecting on the construction of Christian faith and identity in the continent. For the first time, Liberation Theology and Sexuality presents a unique combination of Latin American theologians from more than one generation, reflecting on depth on the ongoing project of the liberation of theology from economic and sexual oppressions in the continent.
