The Theology of the Cross and Marx's Anthropology: A View from the Caribbean

P. Lang, 1991 - Broj stranica: 295
This is a fascinating, major articulation of a contemporary theology of the cross in response to the soteriological challenge of Karl Marx's anthropological "Weltanschauung." The author focuses primarily on the much neglected -Early Writings- (1844 Manuscripts), in which Marx himself provides a necessary humanistic critique of -official- Marxism. The theology of the cross, which the author articulates, is centered in Luther's "theologia crucis," Moltmann's -crucified God- and Latin American (liberation) theology's -divine identification and solidarity with the poor and the oppressed-. Specifically, the context of the work is the Caribbean and the Americas."
