The 'classics' are those books which in one way or another have made a lasting and determinative impact on the fields of theology and religious studies, and which have contributed to a variety of important conversations. SCM Classics emerge from the most extensive and influential backlist of any British theological publisher, and have been comprehensively redesigned and re-packaged. Each book offers a preface from a leading contemporary theologian or biblical scholar, who explains the continuing significance and relevance of the volume in question. Essential reading for scholars, students and general readers alike, and an ongoing staple for all good bookshops, SCM Classics have already made a major impact on the religious publishing landscape. It was Bernard of Clairvaux who said that when it comes to spirituality everyone must 'drink from their own well.' In this profound and moving book Gustavo Gutierrez outlines a spirituality born out of Latin America that, while rooted in the particularity of its own context, yet has great significance beyond it. The book fulfils the promise implicit in the author's earlier work -- often viewed as the 'Bible' of liberation theology -- A Theology of Liberation, which is also published as an SCM Classic. Gutierrez spoke there of the need and importance of developing a spirituality of liberation, recognising from the start that a theology which does not derive from an authentic encounter with God can never be fruitful. What is offered here is a spirituality that is in solidarity with the poor and that underlies a defiant hope that the world might actually be changeable for the better. Such spirituality is more than ever needed in a new centurybeleaguered at its outset by uncertainty, cynicism, and continuing social and economic injustice.
