Theologizing en Espanglish: Context, Community, and Ministry

Theologizing en Espanglish: Context, Community, and Ministry

Abstract:

"In the United States," writes Carmen Nanko-Fernandez, "las teologias latinas are theolgies dreamed in Spanish, articulated in English, and lived in Spanglish." The title of her book conveys the creative tension of this complex, multidimensional reality. Latina theolgoies participate in that 'irruption of contextuality' that characterizes our time. Using fresh, playful language that tweaks the pretentions of mainstream academic theology, she covers a range of topics, from the implications of population shifts on the identity of the church, to the role of the 'everyday' or 'lo cotidiano' in theology, and even the global phenomenon of 'beisbol.'
