About the Author

Phillip Berryman is a freelance translator and writer in Philadelphia. His books include The Religious Roots of Rebellion (1984), Religion in the Megacity (1994) and Latin America at 200: A New Introduction (2016). He has translated approximately thirty books from Spanish and Portuguese, primarily in the areas of theology and human rights.


""With relentless honesty and humbleness, Berryman is always there just before something happens: liberation theology, revolutions in Central America, the end of communism, globalization, and a rising middle class. His focus is Latin America, but his observations carry over into an understanding of the world today . . . and tomorrow."" --June Carolyn Erlick, editor-in-chief, ReVista, the Harvard Review of Latin America""The changing role of the church in Latin America, the emergence of liberation theology, and the courage of many Christians in struggling for social justice is one of the most inspiring stories of our time. Phil Berryman has been a witness, participant, and chronicler of that story since the 1960s. His fascinating memoir is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand this history."" --Robert Ellsberg, publisher, Orbis Books""If you wish to understand Latin American liberation theologies and the contexts in which they were developed, pick up this book and read it from cover to cover, as I did. You will see through Berryman's eyes and life and work the realities of the church in Central and South America, the political situation of this continent, and the military and economic entanglements of the US with the various countries of the southern hemisphere. Furthermore, the book could not be more opportune for our time, given the inhuman and immoral treatment of Latin American migrants by the current US administration. Pick up this book and read and you will be transformed."" --Peter C. Phan, Georgetown University""For all of us who struggle for human rights--especially for the rights of the poor--whether in the United States or Central America, Berryman will remain a memorable ethical and spiritual reference point."" --Leonardo Boff, Brazilian theologian
