About the Author
Phillip Berryman was a pastoral worker in a barrio in Panama during 1965-73, the years in which the new liberation theology and pastoral practice in Latin America were taking shape. From 1976 to 1980, as Central American representative for the American Friends Service Committee, he was in a privileged position to observe the deepening crisis in the region. In 1980, he returned from Guatemala to the United States and now lives in Philadelphia with his wife and three daughters, continuing to do research and writing. He is the author of The Religious Roots of Rebellion and Liberation Theology, and has published numerous reviews and articles in such journals as Commonweal, America, and The National Catholic Reporter.
