Editorial Reviews

Review

"A great resource for introducing the interdisciplinary study of religion in the Americas, with a focus on the relevance of the reflected faith experience and religious practices of marginalized populations for the academic study of religion. Presenting a hemispheric landscape, this book argues for constructive relationships and collaborative methodologies between theology and religious studies in the interest of both engaging today’s lived religion and affirming the necessity of Liberation Theologies in today’s world."
-Maria Pilar Aquino,University of San Diego

"Franklin has penned a valuable book that examines the changing context of youth activism in the post-civil rights era...The book closes by explaining how the issues of today are linked to the past, with particular attention to juvenile justice and the labor movement. This is extraordinarily difficult to do, and the author does it with great ease . . . A progressive and valuable book."-Choice

"Contributes to a lively conversation within liberation theologies about intellectual and social communities of accountability. Gonzalez is a strong young voice in these discussions; her work will be noticed, read, and debated. This book is a must-read for every student of religion."-Margaret R. Miles,University of California Berkeley

"Thoroughly interrogates methodological presuppositions in contemporary studies of theology and religion. I strongly recommend this book to scholars from either discipline who desire to honestly appraise how we investigate our subjects and what we intend to accomplish in our work."-Timothy Matovina,University of Notre Dame
