The emerging church in Latin America: Christ present in the other

"Gustavo Gutiérrez, Las Casas: In Search of the Poor of Jesus Christ. In this excelent study about Las Casas, Gutiérrez presents the thesis that, in the conquered [Latin] America, the indians are seen as "beaten Christs" and that the Christ of God identifies himself with the martyred indian. Thus, if we want to approach the face of Christ, there is only one way: from the Christ present in the other."
