Hispanic Theologians,
In and Out of Place

What is the distinctive character of the growing body of US. Hispanic theology? Nurtured from the first by the insights of Latin American contextual theologies, U.S. Hispanic American theology continues to be enriched and challenged by insights that cross national and denominational borders. The essays in this issue of the Journal of Hispanic/Latino Theology testify to the ways in which our theologies continue to regard fidelity to the Gospel and to the experience of our communities in Latin America and in the U.S. as standards for the integrity of our theological efforts. As Hispanic theologians who ground our theological reflection on the experiences of our communities, to turn away from the more difficult aspects of that experience, or to ignore the non-innocence of our past and of our present, would be negligent and irresponsible.
