This book offers a theology of religious pluralism. It was conceived and developed in Latin America from the perspective of liberation theology. One of the issues at play in the liberation of humanity is the world's ability to accept religious pluralism, and Latin American theology does not want to be silent on this topic. Born out of Latin American spirituality, this theology of religious pluralism is a liberating theology. It may be the first Latin American book that seeks to express something complete and systematic on this topic from the perspective of this continent and that of liberation theology.
