The Mystery of an Itinerant God: Prophetics, Migration, Salvation

Welcome to the electronic Journal of Hispanic/Latino Theology. In 1993, the Academy of Catholic Hispanic Theologians of the United States launched the JHLT as a peer-reviewed quarterly that provided a venue for the
growing body of theological analysis of the religious reality of the Latinos and Latinas in the United States, a population that is steadily increasing in number and in significance for the life of the church. Recognizing the opportunities for a wider readership across the United States, in Latin America, and around the world, the new electronic format of the journal takes advantage of advances in information technology to make this research available to an ever broader and more diverse readership of scholars, pastoral agents, students, and others. We welcome your comments and your questions, as we look forward to sharing this important and exciting work with you. In this inaugural issue, we present two articles. The first is "¡Presente! The Prophetic Legacy of Monseñor Oscar Romero," by Dr. Carmen Nanko Fernández of the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, Illinois.
We also present "Life-Giving Migrations: Re-visioning the Mystery of God through U.S. Hispanic Eyes," by Dr. Miguel H. Díaz of the College of St. Benedict, St. John’s University, in Collegeville Minnesota. We invite you to include this site among your favorites, and to return often as updates are posted. To celebrate the launch of this new format, the electronic Journal of Hispanic/Latino Theology will be free for a limited time.
