Abstract

Liberation theologies and radical theologies are siblings from different parents. They both attest to the death of God: liberation theologies from the rubble of Marxist materialist historical approach and radical theologies from the remains and debris of liberalism and the hermeneutics of suspicion. Both theologies work with and against the onto-theological normativity of western thought. Radical theology proclaims that God is dead because we can finally be free from it. Liberation theology shows how this Christian God of the rich is dead, while very much alive in the arrogance of cool and trendy sepulchered religiosities. This chapter examines these points of contention before unpacking the possibility of a relationship between radical and liberation theologies.
