Event description

Description

Liberation Theologies begin with the reality of people’s lives. Originating in the experience of life in South American and African countries, they ask searching questions about the nature of God’s liberating love and our responsibility and relationship to each other. Considered controversial because they advocate a preferential option for the marginalised and oppressed, what can they teach us about how to live in God’s light as 21st century Christians? In this participative study afternoon, we will explore how the church can be a place of liberation, and how we as individuals can be allies and agents of change.

Professor Anthony Reddie is a Learning and Development Officer for the Methodist Church and Professor Extraordinarius in Theological Ethics at the University of South Africa. He is the author of numerous books, including Black Theology (SCM Press) and Nobodies to Somebodies: A Practical Theology for Education and Liberation (Epworth Press).
