In such a world, how can the Cross be understood and preached? And what are the consequences of that understanding?
Global civilization challenges to society and to Christianity by Leonardo Boff( )
11 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and Portuguese and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Leonardo Boff is one of the founders of Liberation Theology. He remains a seminal thinker within Christian Theology. First published in Portuguese under the title, Civilizacao Planetaria, Global Civilisation is a philosophical and theological enquiry into the various elements of the globalisation process, including market forces, politics, military force, technology and science, communication and spirituality. Boff understands that the process of globalisation affects all spheres of human life, and it represents a new phase in human evolution and a new stage for Earth itself. In the present we will walk a difficult path since globalisation represents a 'revolution' in which a number of issues, such as consciousness, the meaning of life, holiness, the economy, politics, culture, work standards and ethics, are being redefined. However, Boff presents a very optimistic future for humankind, as he envisages that the Earth will become the 'true home' for all human beings. The book is divided into two main parts; in the first part Boff deals with the 'Rise of a New Global Civilisation', and in the second part he discusses 'The New World Order and Christianity'
Cry of the earth, cry of the poor by Leonardo Boff( Book )
4 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In his latest work, the noted Latin American theologian Leonardo Boff extends the intuitions of liberation theology, showing how they contribute to answering urgent questions of poverty and ecological degradation. If faith fails to appreciate the ecological paradigm, Boff argues, it only adds to the crisis and begs for reform." "Focusing on the threatened Amazon of his native Brazil, Boff traces the economic and metaphysical ties that bind the fate of the rain forests with the fate of the Indians and poor of the land. He shows how liberation theology must join with ecology in reclaiming the dignity of the earth and our sense of a common community. To illustrate to possibilities, Boff turns to resources in Christian spirituality, ancient and modern, including cosmic Christology and the vision of St. Francis of Assisi."--Jacket
