Born from an epistemological break from the whole of the Western theological tradition, liberation theology was not one theological school among others in the canon. Instead, it sought a new understanding of theology itself. The basis of that new understanding was the attempt to do theology from the perspective of the poor majority of humankind.
"Another Possible World" is the book resulting from the first World Forum on liberation theology that took place in 2005 in Brazil. This international gathering discussed themes of liberation, ecumenical differences, inter-religious commitments and historical and interdisciplinary methodologies from the perspective of the global poor. The resulting chapters come from an internationally acclaimed group of contributors. This collection brings the current debates within liberation theologies right up to date and allows readers to acquaint themselves with key thinkers on the most relevant topics within this discipline.
