Futuring Our Past
By: Orlando Espin Gary Macy
The Catholic understanding of Tradition is not just about the preservation of ancient practices or customs; it is the process by which the faith is handed on ("traditioned") from one generation to another.
The essays in this volume, by scholars from a wide range of disciplines, center on two questions: How is the Christian tradition "traditioned" among Latino/as? And what impact does this "traditioning" have on the Tradition itself?
Futuring our Past is the first volume in a new Orbis series, published in cooperation with the Center for the Study of Latino/a Catholicism at the University of San Diego.
Along with the editors, contributors include Bernard Cooke, Miguel H. Díaz, Michelle González, José R. Irizzary, Francisco Lozada, Jr., Daisy L. Machado, Nancy Pineda-Madrid, Gary Riebe-Estrella, Jean-Pierre Ruiz, and Theresa Torres.
