Reviews - What do customers think about The People's Church: Bishop Samuel Ruiz of Mexico and Why He Matters?

Title is Misleading  Dec 7, 2002
Although the book provides an okay introduction to the history of the causes of the Zapatista Rebellion...it provides next to nothing concerning Bishop Ruiz's specifc role in any of it. Much of the book is dedicated to a point-counter point sort of argument between Ruiz and the Catholic Church/Gov't...which, while somewhat interesting, fails to mention how the PEOPLE of Chiapas benefit from him. Furthermore, the standpoint of the author oozes with bias - a bias that the author fails to clarify since the author never seems to tell the reader why Ruiz is so great.
 
Contains material missed in other publications  Jan 5, 1999
This book describes the evolution of Liberation theology from its historical core.
