This multi-author volume is an ideal textbook for students and available resource for professors and scholars of contemporary theology and religion. “Introducing Liberative Theologies” offers introductions to the diversity of liberative theologies–from Latin America, Africa, Asia; Black, Hispanic, and feminist; class, gender, and disability. Each chapter provides a survey of these strands of theological discourses as well as an introduction to the scholars and texts readers can reference in order to delve into more advanced or more specific religious concepts. Also includes are discussion and study questions, as well as inserts and pullouts to explain important concepts visually.



A lively and productive balance between broad orientation and exposure to complexity, accessible to a range of audiences and delivering on the promise to incite and enable deeper exploration.
