Offers an overview of the fundamental themes of Hispanic theology and relates it to Catholic tradition. First Diaz presents basic understandings of the theological anthropology developed by Elizondo (mestizaje), Goizueta (accompaniment), Espin (popular religion), Isasi-Diaz (struggle), Garcia-Rivera, ("creatureliness") Pilar Aquino (patriarchy) and Sixto Garcia (relationality). He then shows how Rahners understandings of sin, grace, salvation, and the human person mesh with Hispanic theology.
