New Horizons in Hispanic/Latino(a) Theology (Valentín)
Exploring the Next Generation in Latinx Theology
U.S. Hispanic/Latinx theology is a formidable theological tradition of varied discourses, reflecting the richly textured reality of Latino(a) life in the United States. The writings of the third generation of U.S. Latino(a) religious scholarship provide a window on some of the new turns and methodological directions being taken in U.S. Hispanic/Latino(a) theology.
About these new directions, the contributors to New Horizons ask: What do these directions mean for both our understanding of Latinx religious studies and our doing of such scholarship? In suggesting ways of proceeding, the contributors dare to defy disciplinary lines and expectations.
They offer us new horizons.
Contributors to New Horizons in Hispanic/Latino(a) Theology include Rudy Busto, Samuel Cruz, Michelle González, Francisco Lozada, Jr., Hjamil A. Martínez-Vázquez, Lara Medina, Manuel Mejido, Alex Nava, Zaida Maldonado Pérez, Mayra Rivera Rivera, Christopher Tirres, and Benjamín Valentín.
