Description

Liberation theology is one of the most influential theologies of the twentieth century in its attempt to ground social, economic, political, and religious structures with Jesus' second commandment to 'love your neighbor as yourself'. In this introductory text, Turner explains Liberation Theologians' fight for democratic socialism, demands for radical economic structural change, attempts to raise the consciousness of the poor, and their challenge to traditional roles within the Catholic Church with the goal of giving the laity a stronger voice.
