What is the relationship between salvation, human liberation, and care for creation? To answer this question Daniel Castillo expands on the ideas presented in Gustavo Gutiérrez’s classic work A Theology of Liberation and proposes a novel concept: green liberation theology.

In this compelling and original work Castillo places Gutiérrez in dialogue with a diverse array of theological, ecological, and socio-scientific discourses, drawing upon the work of Jon Sobrino, Willie James Jennings, Walter Brueggemann, Ellen Davis, and others, paying special attention to Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’.

Daniel P. Castillo is assistant professor of theology at Loyola University Maryland. His work, which focuses on the confluence of liberation theology and ecological theology, has appeared in a number of journals including Theological Studies, Political Theology, and Scriptura.
