In this theology, the poor, 'oppressed and believing, ' constitute the privileged locus of theology. That is to say, theology is done from their reality of oppression-liberation and their experience of God. Every great theological theme, every biblical reading, must be reexamined from that angle of vision." (from the Introduction, by Elsa Tamez)...

    Although it was a bit repetitious and the language was a bit too scholarly at some points for my taste (after all, one would think that a book on liberation theology would be accessible for the majority of the population), I really enjoyed this book. The historical perspectives that she gave on the different communities Paul wrote to in his famous letters were really helpful. I agreed with a lot of her points and I feel like my understanding of Justification by Faith has really grown through reading this book. The knowledge gained made this book very much worth the effort to read it. Vale la pena!
