U.S. Latino/a theology has emerged as one of the most dynamic and creative theological developments in the last thirty years. Reflecting the diversity as well as commonality among Latino/a theologians, this ecumenical team of men and women, both Catholic and Protestant, explore some of the core symbols and doctrines of Christianity from a distinctively Latino/a perspective. Beginning with the doctrine of God, creation, and human being, the authors present diverse perspectives on Christology, the church, and the "kin-dom of God" (la familia de Dios).
For students, scholars, clergy and all those engaged in cross-cultural and ecumenical ministries, In Our Own Voices offers a new way of seeing the core ides of faith.
