"To acknowledge the limits and gifts of our theological past, to mourn and rage the depth of oppression, to gratefully accept our place in a lineage of struggle and hope, such is the blessing provided by the authors of Liberation Theologies in the United States. May their work be a catalyst for further acts of daring, compassion, and insight."--Sharon D. Welch, Provost and Professor of Religion and Society, Meadville, Lombard Theological School
"This book is a delight to read...[and] an exemplary account of the genre of liberation theologies."--Garth Kasimu Baker-Fletcher "Religious Studies Review "
"An extraordinary resource for understanding the vitality of liberation theologies and their relation to social transformation in the changing U.S. context. Written in an accessible and engaged way, this powerful and informative text will inspire beginners and scholars alike. I highly recommend it."--Kwok Pui-lan, author of Postcolonial Imagination and Feminist Theology
