Liberation theology is a school of Roman Catholic thought which teaches that a primary duty of the church must be to promote social and economic justice. In this book, Christian Smith explains how and why the liberation theology movement emerged and succeeded when and where it did.

Kenan Jr. Professor of Sociology and director of the Center for the Study of Religion and Society at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, where he has been cited as an outstanding faculty member. He is the award-winning author or coauthor of numerous books whose research focuses primarily on religion in modernity, adolescents, American evangelicalism, and culture.
Some of his significant titles include Moral, Believing Animals (Oxford University Press, 2003); Divided by Faith (Oxford University Press, 2000); Souls in Transition: The Religious & Spiritual Lives of Emerging Adults (Oxford University Press, 2009); Soul Searching: The Religious And Spiritual Lives Of American Teenagers (Oxford University Press, 2005) and The Bible Made Impossible: Why Biblicism Is Not a Truly Evangelical Reading of Scripture (Brazos, 2011)
