The author presents a threefold critique of U.S. Hispanic American theologies, moved by his recognition of what these theologies have already achieved, but also moved, on the other hand, by the urgent need to pour the new wine of U.S. Hispanic American theology into new wineskins. He thus warns U.S. Hispanic American theologians against the old wineskins of a too-narrow ecclesiocentrism, of uncritical appeals to the authority and liberative potential of the biblical text, and of narrowly parochial constructions of the constituency of our discourse.
