about

This is a rich resource to understand how religion has perceived and addressed different forms of violence, from the political and state violence of the 1970s and 1980s to the drug traffickers and youth gangs of today. The contributors offer many fresh insights into contemporary criminal violence and reconsider past interpretations of political violence, liberation theology, and human rights in light of new questions and evidence.
Alexander Wilde is a senior research scholar in residence at the Center for Latin American and Latino Studies, American University. He is co-editor (with Scott Mainwaring) of The Progressive Church in Latin America (University of Notre Dame Press, 1989).

Editorial Reviews

“The 15 contributions reveal the multiple and at times conflicting responses from churches that range from active non-violence to challenging state violence, accompanying popular mobilizations, supporting development projects, and taking up arms in support of revolutionary movements. The volume makes a key contribution to understanding religion in contemporary Latin America.” —Choice
