Offers a variety of voices from marginalized groups in the United States and their approaches to God, christology, scripture, community, and faith.

This updated edition confirms its place as the most important systematic theology reader available with a liberationist perspective. Global in its outlook, Lift Every Voice incorporates the voices of men and women, Native Americans, Anglos, Hispanics, Blacks, Africans, and Asians. The careful organization and choice of essays makes Lift Every Voice a valuable book for a wide variety of courses. Its breadth and timeliness makes it possible to show the liberationist implications of the classic theological curriculum.
