From the ruins of promised liberations that cruelly oppressed the poor, the authors turn our attention to an authentic liberation -- spiritual, economic, and political -- that is informed by the gospel of Christ the Liberator. -- Richard John Neuhaus

Past adherents of [liberation] theology would do well to attend to these arguments simply because, as the authors so compellingly observe, the lives of millions of the poor and oppressed are at stake. -- Michael Cromartie, research fellow, Ethics and Public Policy Center, Washington, D.C.

The authors concentrate on the really important issue -- what kind of liberation theology does the world really need? It needs a political theology based in the Bible and on sensible politics and economics, they say. It's hard to dispute that. This is an excellent and much needed book. -- Clark Pinnock, professor of Christian interpretation, McMaster Divinity College, Hamilton, Ontario

Ronald Nash is professor of philosophy at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.
