Who is Jesus Christ for us today? By what names do we call him? Just as the early Christians developed different names for Jesus, so too must we discover the meaning of Jesus for our day. Jesus Christ Liberator is Boff's distinctive contribution to contemporary Christology. Boff writes, "Christology thought out and vitally tested in Latin America must have characteristics of its own. The attentive reader will perceive them throughout this book. The predominantly foreign literature that we cite ought not to delude anyone. It is with preoccupations that are our alone, taken from our Latin American context, that we will re-read no only the old texts of the New Testament but also the most recent commentaries written in Europe."
