Liberation theology is a dominant theme in Latin America. Exploring the relationship between Christian theology and political activism, liberation theology focuses on social justice, poverty, and human rights. Orlando E. Costas, Samuel Escobar, Andrew Kirk, Emilio A. Nunez, and C. Rene Padilla have sought to further this evangelical understanding of liberation. Their work has transformed the way churches minister amid poverty and influenced theological thought both nationally and internationally. This work presents vital Latin American evangelical theology that seeks to be biblical, relevant, and missiologically effective and that offers holistic, grounded liberation.
