Liberation Theologies, Postmodernity, and the Americas provides a spirited debate on vital issues in religion, philosophy, and ethics. This renowned group of scholars explore liberation theologies in light of discourses of emancipation, revolution, and utopia. Engaging postmodernism's suspicion of grand narratives, these essays consider what the postmodernism/liberation debate means for strategies of social and political transformation.
