This book explores the varied theological, ecclesiastical, spiritual, and cultural expressions associated with the term "Latino/a or Hispanic theology." There is no one definition of Hispanic/Latino theology, but rather a multiplicity of perspectives within the diverse Latino/a communities that articulate a distinctive and relevant Hispanic viewpoint. This collection of thirty-four essays surveys how Latinas/os understand and do theology within those varied contexts. It gives attention to the history, nature, sources, and development of Latinas/os theological expressions within the U.S., their contribution to the overall theological discourse, and to the individual groups that gave rise to them. Part I of the handbook presents essays on many traditional topics in Christian theology representative both of the individual authors and various beliefs found in Latina/o communities. Part II focuses on trends and contextual issues within the overall Hispanic/Latino theological conversation.
