Latin American liberation theology has gone through several stages over the past 50 years, from its initial articulation in the 60s and 70s, to a critical backlash in the 80s, to a proliferation of new voices and concerns in the 90s, and now, to what many see as a tacit acceptance by Pope Francis. How should we make sense of liberation theology today? What is its legacy, and how can people of faith continue to engage it in the next 50 years?

Speaker: Cláudio Carvalhaes, McCormick Theological Seminary
Moderator: Chris Tirres, DePaul University

The Judeo-Christian tradition posits the origin of the universe as a divinely intended and realized moment that attains fulfillment in the saving mystery of the risen Christ. In popular perception this movement unfolds with predictable linearity. The intense debate on global warming and climate change stresses the imperative and urgency of “saving the planet,” a rhetoric that contains resonances of God’s promise to re-create or create the earth anew. Viewed through the prism indigenous religions, creation-salvation axis forms a “soteriological loop” that understands creation as regeneration. The dynamic components of this loop offer some innovative thinking as part of the contribution of systematic theology to the discourse on climate change and integrity of creation.
