Item description for Mapping Public Theology: Beyond Culture, Identity, and Difference by Benjamin Valentin...

Overview
At its best, theology can speak to a large and diverse audience, providing a social and political vision that pulls people together as they work toward worthy public goals. But now, at a time when such a broad vision is badly needed, specific theologies such as liberation theology, process theology, and feminist theology seem to offer narrowing and even divisive social and political visions. In Mapping Public Theology, Valentin explores the ways that one of these theologies_Hispanic/Latino theology_can overcome its fractious nature and strengthen its relevance to society and politics in general. He provides a model for mapping a public theology that transcends the borders. Rather than embracing a kind of identity politics, Valentin says, Hispanic/Latino theology needs to move beyond narrow categories to examine and speak to larger issues such as the political economy and classism, engagement with public policy, and racial and ethnic social relations. Hispanic/Latino theology must use its resources to address a wider audience on social justice and should provide broader visions of social and political emancipation.
