The Politics of Salvation takes a thorough stance: it specializes in the importance of the kingdom within the Hegelian approach whilst it really is seen as encouraged and influenced by way of the Christian suggestion of God. The e-book hence makes connections among Hegel’s political philosophy and his specific appropriation of Christianity’s incarnational mode of considering. In unfolding the results of this place, Lakeland exhibits how Hegel’s proposal can provide the root for a non-dualistic account of the man or woman as spiritual and political. This conjunction permits a theology which sees politics because the area of salvation offering a pragmatic spiritual outlook correct to the modern international and, specifically, to the commitments of Latin America’s liberation theology.

By so doing, it ought in passing to draw classical theological thinking (which Hegel utilized) and contemporary religious thought a little closer together. At the same time it has to be said that many of those whose works have inspired this one would be impatient of its purpose. Latin American liberation theologians do not, as a breed, look kindly on theorisers, especially on those who write from the comfort of (relatively) affluent ivory towers. On the contrary, they insist that liberative praxis in solidarity with the oppressed is the indispensable condition for authentic religion and responsible theology, since it is the only way to avoid the subtle distortions of ideological presuppositions.
