Introducing Latinx Theologies
By: Edwin David Aponte & Miguel A. De La Torre
“To this day, this is the most comprehensive review of the wide range of Latin[x] theologies in the United States, their history, and their varying contexts and contributions.”— Justo L. González, author, Acts: Gospel of the Spirit
Now thoroughly revised, this basic introduction describes both Protestant and Catholic traditions, including the fundamental principles underlying the ways Hispanics approach theology. Showing how their outlook has been shaped by historical and cultural movements including colonialism and Christian mission, this book provides the ideal introduction to a vibrant and distinctive way of doing theology.
