Good as overview reference material, but not ideal if you're looking for a lot of specific theological explanations from the various perspectives. This anthology has pieced together an assortment of scholars who have studied and written about different forms of Liberation Theology.
The text is divided into three major parts that attempt to provide 1 an overview of the contemporary scene, 2 a description of specific aspects of the movement, and 3 an analysis and criticism of Liberation Theology. This book is adequately titled a "companion" to Liberation Theology, because it merely portrays the essays of scholars' opinions about the movement.
Any student of this movement should view this text as only a commentary, while still pursuing the real "meat" of Liberation Theology by going to the works of the Liberation Theologians themselves-such as Leonardo Boff and Gustavo Gutierrez. The "Cambridge Companion" is a series of mostly "dry", but nonetheless informative, essays that give the reader some insight into the Liberation movement.
Certain areas of this collection stand out. Also informative is Edward Antonio's explanation of Black Theology as an important contributor to the Liberation movement The Future of Liberation Theology" is of special interest in that it discusses the continued "grassroots" strength of the Liberation movement despite the fact that the academic or "ivory tower" concern over the topic has waned in recent years. I would only recommend this anthology for the student who is seriously studying Liberation Theology, and not for the layperson who is merely interested in an overview of the movement.
The reviewer above seems to attack this work baselessly, since he accuses it of trying to accomplish what it does not claim for itself.
