Inclusive Theologies and the United Church of Canada (2)

Theological training in the United Church of Canada includes exposure to both past and current streams of theological thought. For example, Liberation Theology is one of the tributaries to mainstream theological thought in the UCC.

Harvey Cox describes Liberation Theology* in this way:

“Liberation theology is more than just a regionally specific “Latin American theology” or a passing fad. It embodies a momentous leap out of the many centuries in which Christianity was defined as a system of beliefs imposed by a hierarchy. It symbolizes the resurrection of faith-as-trust and represents the retrieval of the core of the gospel message as it was understood and lived in the earliest centuries of Christianity.”
