Item Description...
Overview
A sea change in what it means to be church is sweeping the Mexican state of Chiapas. Impoverished people are being empowered to take up their mats and walk. The wind behind this movement is Bishop Samuel Ruiz. He has enraged cattle barons and land owners who resent his role in ending the exploitation of native peoples. He has angered Vatican officials who feel threatened by a model of church that they do not control. But the church is alive in Chiapas-and Gary MacEoin reveals the powerful lessons it holds for all who seek to build a church that is building life.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Title is Misleading  Dec 7, 2002
Although the book provides an okay introduction to the history of the causes of the Zapatista Rebellion...it provides next to nothing concerning Bishop Ruiz's specifc role in any of it. Much of the book is dedicated to a point-counter point sort of argument between Ruiz and the Catholic Church/Gov't...which, while somewhat interesting, fails to mention how the PEOPLE of Chiapas benefit from him. Furthermore, the standpoint of the author oozes with bias - a bias that the author fails to clarify since the author never seems to tell the reader why Ruiz is so great.
 
Contains material missed in other publications  Jan 5, 1999
This book describes the evolution of Liberation theology from its historical core.
