Liberation Through Reconciliation

O. Ernesto Valiente

Fordham University Press

The first chapter examines reconciliation from a Christian perspective in order to establish the necessary theoretical framework for a topic that is studied from the intersection of various academic disciplines. This analysis identifies the central theological questions and arguments in the field of reconciliation, as well as the main assumptions that ground them. The chapter goes on to offer an initial approach to reconciliation from a distinct liberationist perspective. It explores the relationship between reconciliation and liberation, addresses the main criticisms leveled against liberation theology, and describes how this theological perspective can be used to structure a reconciling Christian praxis that meets the demands of truth, justice, and forgiveness.
