"A masterful, interdiciplinary analysis . . . . Medina sets forth a perceptive crituqe and calls for a greater attentiveness tot he complex history of mestizaje."--Roberto S. Goizueta

This book traces the subversive and innovative ways in which Catholic theologians, such as Virgilio Elizondo, Orlando Espín, Ada María Isasi-Díaz, and Pilar Aquino, have turned this concept into a powerful framework for articulating the experiences of faith of Latina/o communities. At the same time the author examines some of the limitations and contradictions inherent in this concept and explores new language for describing the vibrant and complex ethno-cultural and religious identity of Latina/o communities today.

Néstor Medina, a Guatemalan-Canadian theologian, received his doctorate from the University of Toronto. He currently teaches at Toronto School of Theology, Toronto, Canada.
