About this product
- DescriptionThe 'preferential option for the poor' - the idea that the poor and helpless have a claim to special consideration from society - has been one of the most significant developments in twentieth-century Christian theology. The essays in this volume show how some forms of postmodern thought and theology can mask patterns of oppression and provide an excuse for deafness to voices from the margins. The authors, writing from a wide variety of national, ethnic, and theological perspectives, seek to revive the preferential option for the poor for the postmodern world, showing how options for the margins can engage postmodernity in new ways and break new ground in religious, theological, and ethical, as well as social, political, and ecomic thinking.
