This volume concentrates on the key texts and ideas in Gustavo Guti rrez's thought. It presents the essential Guti rrez for students and the general reader. In his first anthology of Guti rrez's massively influential work, James Nickoloff draws from Guti rrez's many published books and translates some pieces for the first time. Arranged both thematically and chronologically, the Selected Texts highlight not only the revolutionary import of Guti rrez's theology but also his deep and searching spirituality, his bold view of the church, and his personal challenge to the reader to engage the world's injustices directly. Nickoloff's expert Introduction explains the development of Guti rrez's ideas and sheds new light on the Latin American, especially Peruvian, context of his thought.
