Caminemos con Jesus: Toward a Hispanic/Latino Theology of Accompaniment
Goizueta RS. Caminemos con Jesus: Toward a Hispanic/Latino Theology of Accompaniment. Orbis Books; 1995.Abstract

While the growth in both numbers and influence of Hispanics in North American Catholicism and Protestantism has been commented on widely, up until now there has been no systematic attempt to define a Hispanic theology...In delineating the very particular nature and worldview of Hispanic/Latino theology, Caminemos con Jesus challenges both traditional Euro-American theologies and modern Western epistemological assumptions. It examines the implications of this theological method for the Church and the academy, as well as for the future of the Latino community and North American society...

Theologizing en Espanglish: Context, Community, and Ministry
Nanko-Fernandez C. Theologizing en Espanglish: Context, Community, and Ministry. Orbis Books; 2010.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.'
