Controversial and brilliant. Petrella is one of the leading voices in twenty-first century Latin American Liberation Theology. --Marcella Althaus-Reid, PhD Chair in Contextual Theology, School of Divinity, University of Edinburgh
Ivan Petrella's brilliant and bold book raises several timely and important challenges for future work within & about liberation theologies. He has produced a seamless and compelling integration of theology, economics, and legal theory, both addressing and stimulating debate with the major liberation theologies of the Americas. His analysis will be key for years to come.
--Otto Maduro, Professor of Latin American Christianity & World Christianity, Drew University Theological School In this timely and well-argued book Ivan Petrella's thought gets even more incisive and original. The current state of the world requires the challenge of liberation theology because the poor are dying everywhere, not only in the so-called Third World. Theology, economics and legal theory come together in this wonderful canvas of social reflexivity, this is a book that will remain seminal to all theologians in the 21st Century.
