Used - good condition (rare)

Situating Latin American Christendom within world cultures, Dussel traces the development of Latin American Christianity from its origins up to the present day, with the significant emergence of the Medellin Conference and the comunidades de base.

As Dussel makes clear, a theology based on an authentic self-understanding of a dependent people will be different from the theology of the regnant North Atlantic academies, for it will be a theology of the slave rather than of the Pharaoh, a theology of the "periphery" rather than of the "center".

We in the countries of the "center" can ill afford not to listen to voices such as Dussel's. "The Vietname debacle, Watergate, the oil crisis have created a certain level of consciousness, of guilt in the U.S.," he says. "The theology of liberation is the protest of dominated peoples. As such it can provide a certain clarity with regard to the cause of this guilt."

In this edition, the author has provided a special appendix on the Chicanos- "a Latin American people within the United States." They too will see themselves in a new way as a result of Dussel's trenchant analysis.
