More on Gutierrez: CDF head is “naive”?

Gustavo Gutierrez has been on my radar lately, so recent comments of Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani are of interest. Vatican Insider reports:

Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani has criticized the Prefect of the Congregation for the Faith, Gerhard Ludwig Müller for opening up to Liberation Theology. Müller, whom Benedict XVI nominated leader of the Congregation in 2012, is the co-author – alongside liberation theologian Gustavo Gutiérrez – of the book “Dalla parte dei poveri. Teologia della liberazione, teologia della Chiesa(“On the Side of the Poor: Liberation Theology, Theology of the Church”), a recent Italian edition of a book they wrote in German in 2004. A great deal was written about the book in the columns of Vatican daily L’Osservatore Romano. Gutiérrez met with Pope Francis last September.

Complete article is here. I do hope someone will publish the Müller/Gutierrez book in English. (Friends at Orbis, take note.)
