How should Augustine, Aquinas, Bonhoeffer, Kant, Nietzsche, and Plato be read today, in light of postcolonial theory and twenty-first-century understandings? This book offers a reader-friendly introduction to Christian liberationist ethics by having scholars "from the margins" explore how questions of race and gender should be brought to bear on twenty-four classic ethicists and philosophers. Each short chapter gives historical background for the thinker, describes that thinker's most important contributions, then raises issues of concern for women and persons of color.

Contributors include George (Tink) Tinker, Asante U. Todd, Traci West, Darryl Trimiew, Ada María Isasi-Díaz, Robyn Henderson-Espinoza, and many others.

Disagree completely with this. This was a good series with interesting characters. It does not belong in the worst fantasy book list.

I rather like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Not sure why the book pictured is being panned.

I doubt this really belongs on the 'worst' list. I thought it was well written and interesting. *But then again, I haven't read this series in years*

Harshly critiques books. Spells medieval incorrectly. Never coming back to this site again.
