"Chronicling over a decade of war, revolution, and social change, Phillip Berryman offers the most up-to-date and comprehensive analysis of the interplay between religion and politics in Central America. Focusing on Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Guatemala, Berryman shows how during the 1980s each country became the setting for a profound drama of faith and oppression, revolution and retrenchment." "In Nicaragua, the Sandinista revolution presented an alliance of Christians and Marxists inspired by a common ideal of social change. But with Christians also prominent in the opposition, the ensuing social conflict had a distinctly religious character. In El Salvador, as Christians increasingly opted for the cause of the poor, they found themselves sharing "the same fate as the poor," with priests, nuns, and even an archbishop among the victims of right-wing terror. In Guatemala, a succession of military governments - including one headed by a born-again Christian - resorted to wholesale massacres of the Indian population." "Throughout Stubborn Hope, Berryman highlights the contending religious and social visions that animate and divide the various churches. Particularly significant, however, is the rise of Pentecostal and evangelical churches in Central America with their challenge to the traditional status of the Catholic church. Avoiding superficial explanations, Berryman provides an insightful and sympathetic analysis of the factors that have encouraged the growth in religious pluralism in Central America, and suggests wide-ranging implications for the future." "For over a decade, Central America has challenged North Americans as a Cold War battlefield in the fight against Marxism; for many Christians, it has also served as a call to solidarity and action. For all readers, Stubborn Hope provides an essential review of that history and an opportunity to learn from its lessons."--BOOK JACKET
Our unfinished business : the U.S. Catholic bishops' letters on peace and the economy by Phillip Berryman ( Book )
6 editions published between 1989 and 2013 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What human ends are served by our economic policies' To whom is what "owed" in our country today' Is there an acceptable argument for just wars ' or for the proliferation of nuclear weapons' In the final years of the Reagan era, The U.S. Catholic bishops emerged as articulate sources of dissenting wisdom, publicly testing our foreign and domestic policies against the principles of morality and humanity. With the same succinct style of Liberation Theology, Phillip Berryman analyzes two recent and widely circulated texts: the 1982 Challenge of Peace (on nuclear arms) and the 1986 Economic Justice For All. Drawing on debate in and beyond church circles over these letters, Berryman argues that as we search for acceptable answers to urgent political questions we must use ethical and moral traditions if we are to confront them squarely. Only then can we promote peace and prosperity for all. From the Trade Paperback edition
Religion in the megacity : Catholic and Protestant portraits from Latin America by Phillip Berryman ( Book )
9 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and Spanish and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this stimulating book, a leading expert on German affairs provides an overview of German political development since 1945. The key to the well-being and prosperity of Europe after 1945 was the creation of a stable and democratic West Germany. Unification in 1990 not only transformed Germany's role in Europe and the world but brought new political, social and economic problems caused by the vast expense of unity and high labour costs. The author argues that these great changes provide a new and daunting challenge to the Bonn system by calling into question the Berlin Republic's ability to meet the needs of the German nation. The difficulties resulting from Germany's commitment to European integration are also addressed. Within Europe, German insistence on deeper integration is often seen as evidence of a German wish to dominate Europe, even though the stated aim of Kohl's government is to prevent this from happening. The author believes that Germany's new power is clearly visible, and must be carefully managed both by Germans and by their European partners if grave conflict is to be avoided
