Political theology may be said to be the ecumenical theology of today, its influence extending from the World Council of Churches to the Roman Catholic Church in South America. Through carefully chosen extracts, this Reader illustrates the growth and significance of a vitally important movement. The main sections, each provided with a brief introduction, present examples of political theology in the authors' own words. They cover Christian-Marxist dialogue, the 'theology of hope', the 'theology of revolution', the 'theology of development', the 'theology of liberation', 'black theology', Christian resistance, and violence- The writers represented include Jurgen Moltman, Rubem A. Alves, Gustavo Gutierrez, James Cone, Thomas Merton, Helder Camara and Camilo Torres. Dr Kee concludes that authentic theology springs from authentic witness, and political theology is open-ended, as committed Christians discover new truth in a costly way.
