About-

'Mestizo Christianity' is the most comprehensive introduction to the work of the principle figures in U.S. Hispanic theology - Protestant as well as Catholic. Other anthologies exist, but 'Mestizo Christianity' provides the best and most representative writing by each of the fourteen "first-generation" theologians in their areas of specialization. Since by every account the Latino/Hispanic church will continue to grow well into the twenty-first century, 'Mestizo Christianity' provides a grounding in an area of increasing theological and pastoral importance.

Topics include affirming Hispanic culture and theological identity, methodology, popular religiosity, women's voices, social ethics, spirituality, and ecumenical perspectives. Also included is a brief biography of each featured author and a comprehensive bibliography of Hispanic theology, the only one of its kind. 'Mestizo Christianity' will be an indispensable resource for students, clergy, and pastoral agents.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"In [Latino] theology, 'mestizaje' is a core paradigm because Latino history begins in the early sixteenth century with the Spanish conquest and the religious and cultural confluence of the Spaniards, Amerindians, and Africans in the Americas.... These articles, along with the works listed in the bibliography, nurture a hope embodied in the daily struggles of Latinos and present a theological vision taking shape in the historical becoming of a new 'mestizaje'."

Virgil Elizondo


"A long overdue collection...a resource that should be in the hands of any serious student of this theology from the margins of U.S. society."

Gary Riebe-Estrella, S.V.D., Catholic Theological Union


"This is an excellent anthology of recent writings by Hispanic/Latino theologians. Including a comprehensive bibliography, the book is superbly conceived and clearly organized. In compiling and editing this major volume, Banuelas has performed a great service for the Hispanic/Latino community, the church, and the academy."

Roberto S. Goizueta, Loyola University


"An excellent introduction to Latino theology, showing both its inner coherence and its various forms, perspectives, and nuances. Highly recommended."

Justo L. Gonzalez
