Introducing Liberative Theologies
By: Miguel A. De La Torre
This multi-author volume is an ideal textbook for students and a valuable resource for professors and scholars of contemporary theology and religion. Introducing Liberative Theologies offers introductions to the diversity of liberative theologies--from Latin America, Africa, Asia; Black, Hispanic, and feminist; class, gender, and disability. Each chapter provides a survey of these strands of theological discourses as well as an introduction to the scholars and texts readers can reference in order to delve into more advanced or more specific religious concepts. Also included are discussion and study questions, as well as inserts and pullouts to explain important concepts visually.
