In this critical time in world history when many spirits and bodies are plagued (by AIDS, covid, monkeypox, hunger, bird-flu, mad-cow disease, and other ailments) and many communities are broken (by wars, juntas, climate crises, domestic abuse, poverty, and other shitstems), this book stirs up the ends of Liberation Theology – re(l)ease. As long as the world is plagued and broken, the re(l)ease that Liberation Theology seeks are needed. Bringing together a diverse and global array of theologians who have taken up the liberative mantel, this book will demonstrate why liberation theology today needs releasing from its illusions and assumptions, and what comes next once it does so. With contributors including Miguel A. De La Torre, Anna Kasafi Perkins and Michael Jaggesar, the book demonstrates that Liberation Theology is not passé or dead. But it needs some stirring up.

"In theology, much-needed material turns are gaining some ground, counteracting centuries of the dominance of disembodied ideas. In this volume, attention to everyday lives and struggles adds depth and complexity to the ongoing work of liberation theologies. " -- Joerg Rieger
