Summary
  • "The controversy within the Catholic Church over the concept of liberation theology raises the questions: is there room in Christian philosophy for a socialist society? And is there a place in a socialist society? Nicaragua's recent experience, says Margaret Randall, shows the answer to these questions to be "yes". The dominant role Christianity played in the Nicaraguan revolution both before and after the 1979 overthrow of the Somoza regime shows that the concrete goals shared by the two ideologies, Christianity and Marxism, outweigh their theoretical contradictions. The main part of Christians in the Nicaraguan Revolution consists of long narratives by members of two Christian base communities with key roles in the Nicaraguan revolution. Solentiname is the retreat founded in the mid-sixties by Father Ernesto Cardenal -- now Nicaragua's minister of culture -- on a remote island in Lake Nicaragua. El Riguero is an urban community, founded in 1972 by father Uriel Molina in a Managua barrio. Christians in the Nicaraguan Revolution features the voices of "ordinary" believers as well as those of well-known religious and political leaders"--Back cover
