Description: Pope Francis has offered a bold challenge to an “economy that kills,” identifying in particu­lar a form of globalisation that turns people into disposable consumers and increases the widening gap between the rich and poor. In do­ing so, he has drawn not only from the social teaching of the Latin American Church, but also in a particular way from a school of the­ology that arose in Argentina called “Theology of the People.” A type of liberation theology, it emphasises respect for the culture and popular religious expressions of the poor. This book by a Latin American theologian offers an overview of this theology and shows how it informs Pope Francis's agenda and ministry.
