Grace and Humanness
By: Orlando O. Espin
In chapters ranging from the construction of an intercultural theology of Tradition, to new grounding questions for theological anthropology, Orlando O. Espín addresses the challenge of culture and insightfully attempts to construct Christian theology from perspectives that are neither culturally, historically, nor ethically naïve. Together, these essays open new theological ground and ask theologians to acknowledge and name their cultural perspectives and locations in the construction of their theologies.
Orlando O. Espín is professor of systematic theology at the University of San Diego and associate director of the Center for the Study of Latino/a Catholicism. He is author of Idol and Grace: Traditioning and Subversive Hope; The Faith of a People: Theological Reflections on Popular Catholicism, and co-editor of Futuring Our Past: Explorations in the Theology of Tradition and From the Heart of Our People: Latino/a Explorations in Catholic Systematic Theology.
