By Mr. D. P. Jay on April 21, 2012
Format: Paperback
The title is misleading since this book deals with only one particular controversy, albeit one which has been raging for about thirty years.

It takes Christian Aid as a case study because its staff members are into liberation theology while its punters are into development theology.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By S. McDonald on October 31, 2007
Format: Paperback
This book addresses the question of whether Christians should be struggling towards development or liberation. It explores the theologies of development and liberation, from their beginnings in the 1960s through their changes to the central arguments today. The contrasts are examined in the practice of faith-based aid agencies. The understanding of how to practice justice differs widely for development theology and liberation theology. Whilst the theology of development remain focused on the economic realm, on trade and consumption, the theology of liberation expands the discussion beyond the economic realm to deal with politics, race, gender, and culture more generally. These different concepts of justice lead to very different actions in communities around the world. This book provides students with access to an in-depth view of these practices in a clear and concise context. The book looks not only at the theologies themselves but also how they came to emerge, and how they stand in contrast across the globe today.
