Revelation's Theology of Liberation for You. by Ward Ewing. Published March 2006 by Wipf & Stock Publishers.

The Book of Revelation is a work of profound theology. But its literary form makes it impenetrable to many modern readers and open to all kinds of misinterpretations. Richard Bauckham explains how the book's imagery conveyed meaning in its original context and how the book's theology is inseparable from its literary structure and composition.

The Power of the Lamb: Revelation's Theology of Liberation for You. Cambridge (MA): Cowley Publications, 1990. Discusses themes of liberation and a Christian view of power in the Book of Revelation, and aims for a middle-class North American audience who might be experiencing problems such as employment, money, marriage, or chemical dependency. Ewing is an Episcopal priest. Il Vangelo della liberazione: letture politica di Luca.

Liberation theology was a reaction to the social injustice present in Latin . The Power of the Poor in History. Translated by Robert R. Barr.

Liberation theology was a reaction to the social injustice present in Latin America and. especially the abuses suffered by the marginalised and disenfranchised members of society. The term Liberation Theology was eventually coined in 1971 by the Peruvian priest Gustavo. Liberation theology preaches a radical change in interpretation of the Christian doctrine; it. explains Christianity as praxis of liberation and sees itself as the guide to this praxis. However, since its view is mainly political, liberation is also a political concept and the guide.

Since first Thomas Aquinas defined theology as revelation, or the rational elucidation of revealed truth, the idea of revelation has played a fundamental role in the history of western theology. This book provides a new and detailed investigation of the concept, examining its nature, sources, and limitations in all five of the major scriptural religions of the world: Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. The first part of the book discusses the nature of theology, and expounds the comparative method as the most useful and appropriate for the modern age.

Liberation theologians believed that God speaks particularly through the poor and that the Bible can be understood only when . The birth of the liberation theology movement is usually dated to the second Latin American Bishops’ Conference, which was held in Medellín, Colom.

Liberation theologians believed that God speaks particularly through the poor and that the Bible can be understood only when seen from the perspective of the poor. They perceived that the Roman Catholic Church in Latin America was fundamentally different from the church in Europe-i. that the church in Latin America should be actively engaged in improving the lives of the poor.

A THEOLOGY OF LIBERATION FOR NORTH AMERICANS Much has been written about issues of oppression and liberation for Latin Americans, but little about the same struggles for middle-class North Americans who feel powerless-those, for example, experiencing problems with employment, money, marriage, and alcohol dependency. Through a close reading of the Book of Revelation, with illustrations from his pastoral experience, Ewing offers readers a Christian view of power.

Comments:

Foginn
This is a dynamic and enlightened perspective of the Kingdom of Light verses the kingdom of darkness.It is more relevant to life today than when it was first published in the 90s. Ward Ewing gives a lucid and comprehensive exposition of the Christian need to conform to biblical principles and practices for a successful and victorious life.His injunction " When most of lives are formed by and through the contractual communities of the beast, it forms the basis for which our perception of reality is based upon," is very insightful when we consider the present and constant economic crisis Christians are entangled by. This Book brings to life the Book Of Revelations in a way that none other has done so that we can understand,no longer suffering from a lack of knowledge, take constructive and prudent steps to overcome the world,live a balanced Christian life and proclaim Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done In Earth As It is In Heaven.

The book was well written and I used some of the material in writing my final paper for my Revelation class.
