Led by voices who raise up their spiritual, economic, cultural, and political experiences at the margins of social power in the postmodern exigencies of the Americas, liberation theology demystifies the pretensions of the Eurocentric subject. At its roots, liberation theology attempts to rebuild theology in view of the history of massive suffering produced by empire and to affirm marginalized faith communities in their creation of a new humanity. The existence of millions of people who are not recognized as human beings by the prevailing social systems call into question those systems and the religious structures that validate them.
