Retooling Liberation Theology  Nov 22, 2005
For the past few years, Gonzalez, a theologian, has been engaged in a project to develop a "radically evangelical basis" for earlier versions of liberation theology. The Gospel of Faith and Justice provides extensive background on political, social, and biblical aspects of liberation theology and analysis of its current state. In the final chapter, which some may wish to read first, the author enumerates three aspects of the current state of liberation theology that he believes necessitate radical change.

First, at the end of the twentieth century, liberation theology was often tied to national liberation movements, which were "defeated by the brutal reaction of local oligarchs." The second blow to earlier liberation movements was the opposition of conservatives in the Catholic Church, who marginalized leaders by systematically naming bishops who were opposed to liberation theology. The third point Gonzalez makes in describing liberation theology's current crisis may be of wider interest to the general reader since it involves the growing number of Christians embracing Pentacostalism. In Latin America, he writes, poor people seem not to have embraced liberation theology. He borrows a quotation form a Guatemalan Catholic religious sister who said, "The Catholic Church opted for the poor, but the poor opted for Pentacostalism."

The author's explanation of the Pentecostal influence is a thread that runs throughout this work, and is the subject of an entire chapter, "The Pentecostal Church of the Poor." The chapter provides statistics on the rise in Pentacostalism and a clear, detailed examination of the belief system that seems to negate the need for liberation theology, including "Human initiative plays an important role, manifest both in the fervent prayers begging God to come through on his promises and in the boldness needed to break with enslaving bonds and to renounce all one's possessions."

This work is a truly useful text not only on the history and prospects for retooling liberation theology, but also on the wider Christian message of justice.
