Item description for Fidel & Religion: Conversations with Frei Betto on Marxism & Liberation Theology by Fidel Castro, Frei Betto & Armando Hart...

"This startling book is based on conversations between the Cuban leader and a Brazilian priest. The talk is informal and far-ranging, and Betto's questions are often provocative (Does Cuba export revolution?')."-Publishers Weekly

The product of an intimate 23-hour dialogue between Fidel Castro and Brazilian liberation theologist Frei Betto, this was a Simon & Schuster bestseller in the 1980s. Here Castro speaks candidly about his views on religion and his education in elite Catholic colleges, offering an insight into the man behind the beard.

Features a new translation and a unique selection of photos of Fidel as a boy.

Reviews - What do customers think about Fidel & Religion: Conversations with Frei Betto on Marxism & Liberation Theology?

A thought-provoking examination  Dec 9, 2006
Fidel & Religion is a particularly unusual theological discussion, consisting entirely of a dialogue between Brazilian liberation theologist Frei Betto and Fidel Castro. Spoken over the course of twenty-three hours, the dialogue reveals Castro's background and his views on ethics, morals, religion, and revolution. Now with a new introduction revealing how Fidel & Revolution helped open the way for Pope John Paul II's historic 1998 visit to Cuba, and the Cuban Communist Party's decision to accept as members those practicing religious faith. Of especial interest are the parallels between Socialism and Christianity that Castro astutely observes. A thought-provoking examination for the sake of the ideals spoken as well as the political and historical importance of the man who espouses them.
A magnificent piece of work!  Nov 14, 2006
I read this when I was in high school and it inspired me to read more on European history, Greek and Roman history, Aztec, Maya, and Inca history and of course on current history. As a high school kid I was very ignorant and politically illeterate until I read this book and it literally changed my life. Today I am a University student studying Latin American history and Spanish Literature and I have to say that this book is still one of the my favorites and of influence to me. Rarely does a book--or interview--take you from Religion to politics to history of Miedeaval Europe to Liberation Theology and back again to Religion. I sincerely recommend this book to anyone who is studying on these fields and/or has intellectual curiosity and wants to get hold of a great text; definetly this one!
