Liberation Theology Bibliography

Bryan Stone

 

 

Feminist Theology

Note: This bibliography does not contain a section devoted to feminist theology (which I consider to be one of the most important forms of liberation theology). This is not due to an oversight on my part; it is due to the fact that in my classes on liberation theology I use a separate and much fuller feminist bibliography generated by the Anna Howard Shaw Center of Boston University School of Theology. I do not have an electronic version of that bibliography to post and, to my knowledge, the Shaw Center does not have one available. I hope someday they will produce one.
