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
