History And Politics Of Latin American Theology 1
This work explores the contribution of major Latin American theologians to the intellectual and pastoral discussion of Christian involvement in contemporary politics. Aguilar argues that within the Latin American context there has been a rediscovery of a fluid, dualistic, and sometimes contradictory relation between the practice of religion and the practice of politics. Christians in the Latin American context were forced to respond to a general crisis in politics, whereby their own beliefs, ritual practices, and way of life was pushed to the limit by human rights violations and absolutist forms of government. The Christian response was a confrontation against the state as was the case of Chile, or a dissenting silence, as was the case of Argentina. However, the historical relations between Church and state, Christian communities and secular powers, were inscribed in literary texts in Latin America. These texts expressed an archaeology of historical and theological memory.
Section 1 examines religion and politics within the ecclesial framework provided by Gustavo Gutierrez, Jon Sobrino, and Ronaldo Muoz. Section 2 explores the challenges to those authors by focusing on a more political critique of Christianity and society provided by Pablo Richard, Ernesto Cardenal, and Oscar Romero and section 3 examines challenges to the previous six authors by discussing religion and politics within the context of ecological theology, the feminist critique to biblical studies, and discussions on culture and the Gospel today in Leonardo Boff, Elsa Tamez, and Diego Irarrazaval.

Mothers And Daughters Of The Bible Speak$26.99Add to cart
God always keeps His promises, but not always in the way we expect….
“Have faith” is a phrase we hear all the time. But what does it actually look like to live it out? In The Mothers and Daughters of the Bible Speak, Shannon Bream examines the lives of biblical women to see how God’s plans can turn our worlds upside down. She tells the story of Jochebed, a mother who took enormous risks to protect her son, Moses, from Pharaoh. Could Jochebed have imagined that God’s actual design for her son involved flight into exile and danger? And yet this was all part of the master plan to deliver Israel from slavery. Another biblical mother, Rebekah, made terrible choices in an attempt to ensure her son’s place in history. And a daughter, Michal, struggled to keep her faithless father, Saul, from sin, while battling pride in herself.
Through these stories, Shannon explains the intimate connection between faith and family–and how God’s unexpected agenda can redefine the way we think about family. Not all of these mothers and daughters in the Bible were paragons of virtue. Like us, they were human beings who faltered and struggled to do their best. While some heard God’s voice, others chose their own paths. Through the lens of their imperfections, we can see how God used their stories to bring about His divine plans. He’s still doing the same work in our lives today.
The Mothers and Daughters of the Bible Speak shows that faith is more often a twisting road than a straight line. Yet, as the stories of biblical families attest, at the end of these journeys lies greater peace and joy than we could ever imagine.
