For the following twenty years, he worked as Professor of Theology at the Franciscan School for Philosophy and Theology in Petropolis, Brazil.

He has written many books, such as Introducing Liberation Theology,Faith On The Edge,Cry of the Earth, Cry of the Poor (Ecology & Justice Series),Francis of Assisi: A Model for Human Liberation, etc. Although this book was published in English in 1989, its contents were actually written from 1978-1988.

Faith on the Edge book. He was present in the first reflections that sought to articulate indignance toward misery and marginalization with discourse, which later generated the Christian faith known as Liberation Theology. He has always been an ardent of the Human Rights cause, helping to formulate a new, Latin American perspective on Human Rights with, Rights to Life and the ways to maintain them with dignity. He has received honorary doctorates, in Politics from the University of Turin (Italy) and in Theology for the University of Lund (Sweden).

As a Brazilian, Boff is witness to, and active in, the liberation movement within the Catholic Church in Latin America. He claims that the Church there is redefining itself as a modern, populist movement. It is," writes Boff, "that the Church of the future is being molded. There are more Catholics in Latin America than on any other continent. Soon more than half of the members of the Church will live here.

In Faith on the Edge: Religion and Marginalized Existence (Boff 1989), he portrays the church’s walking with the oppressed from the valley of tears to the Promised Land. In these writings, Boff also develops a spirituality of liberation, very much in line with his Franciscan tradition. Parallel with this effort, Boff in cooperation with his brother Clodovis published various booklets on how to do theology (see Clodovis Boff). In his latest books, he has focused on ecology and spirituality (Boff 1995).

Comments:

MARK BEN FORD
Leonardo Boff (born 1938) is a former priest, as well as a theologian, philosopher and writer, who is currently Professor Emeritus of Ethics, Philosophy of Religion and Ecology at the Rio de Janeiro State University. After being "silenced" by the Catholic church for his supposedly "Marxist" views, he ultimately left the Franciscan order and priesthood. He has written many books, such as Introducing Liberation Theology,Faith On The Edge,Cry of the Earth, Cry of the Poor (Ecology & Justice Series),Francis of Assisi: A Model for Human Liberation, etc. Although this book was published in English in 1989, its contents were actually written from 1978-1988.

An early chapter asserts, "The Church's option is a preferential option for the poor, against their poverty. The 'poor' here are those who suffer injustice." (Pg. 23) The basic problem facing theology as a practice is not how to proclaim the gospel to the critical, enlightened, secularized unbeliever of today, "but how to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ to the believing non-person---to the exploited, miserable largely Christian masses of our continent." (Pg. 57)

The "liberation" that interests Latin American theologians, he adds, is "the liberation of the whole human being and all human beings... of all oppressed dimensions, personal and social... without the exclusion of anyone or anything." (Pg. 59) He notes, however, that Marxism as a theoretical practice, "is altogether to be rejected as directly opposed to Christianity." (Pg. 74)

He criticizes "traditional images of Christ that are not conducive to liberation theology," such as the "agonizing, dying Christs of Latin American tradition," which symbolize "the internalized helplessness of the oppressed." (Pg. 125) He suggests that Jesus was "sentenced to death as a guerrilla." (Pg. 140)

These passionate, critical essays are very useful for anyone who desires to study this (now, "out of fashion") theological movement.

Boff's work is important and applicable to folks of any (or no) faith tradition.
This book functions for me as a great groundwork for my perspective towards
justice, nonviolence, local autonomy, and resistance to exploitation.
