This project started out as a creative variation on an assignment for TH3444: Liberation Theology of Gustavo Gutiérrez, a course at Princeton Theological Seminary. It has now become the place for reflection on broader themes of theology in a globalized world.
A note on the blog’s history: The original reflections here were a dialogue with the content and themes of the seminary course each week. Topics emerge from the breadth of liberation theology and the depth of Latin American historical, cultural, economic, and ecclesial contexts. The goal of this project is to balance theological study and witness, as well as preserve a record of my thoughts and reactions to readings and experiences along the way. A few selections from the original reading list:
Called for Freedom: The Changing Context of Liberation Theology by Jose Comblin
Liberation Theologies in the United States: An Introduction by Stacey Floyd-Thomas and Anthony Pinn, eds.
Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent by Eduardo Galeano
A Theology of Liberation: History, Politics and Salvation and Essential Writings by Gustavo Gutierrez
