The Word Became Culture
By: Miguel H. Diaz
“A crucial corollary of the Christian belief in the Incarnation is the affirmation that revelation can only take place in and through human cultures. Consequently, U.S. Latinx theologians have been asking what a theology done latinamente would look like. This books answers that question.”—Roberto S. Goizueta, Boston College
"This book shows the astonishing strides Latinx theologians have made in exploring the complexities of culture over the past three decades. An excellent overview of the multiple directions that have been taken in this important sector of theology in the U.S. today." —Robert Schreiter, Catholic Theological Union
This inaugural volume of the new Orbis series “Disruptive Cartographers” includes original essays by leading scholars who lay out the issues and parameters of God talk latinamente. In addition to the series editors, contributors include Nestor Medina, Jean-Pierre Ruiz, and María Teresa (MT) Dávila.
Miguel H. Díaz, former U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See (2009-2012), holds the John Courtney Murray Chair in Public Service at Loyola University, Chicago.
