Special Issue "Revisioning Latin American Christian Theology"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 28 February 2022.
Interests: Pentecostal Theology and Spirituality; religion and culture; Latin American Theology; Latino/a; Contextual Theologies, Lived Christianity
Latin American Christian theology—whether biblical, historical, systematic, practical, missional, or contextual—is as varied as the cultural tapestry that weaves the region. For example, it is expressed, embodied, and lived in many languages, spiritualities, and geographies. Moreover, the everchanging economic and political landscape in many Latin American countries has exacerbated the migrant reality, and adds new cultural dynamics. As a result of this, Christian theology within Latin America needs to be continually revised.
Although some studies have responded to this call, there is still space for new and creative research focused on multi-cultural dynamics and spirituality, faith and race, indigenous expressions of Christianity, missions, and contextual theology, to mention a few. Accordingly, an encompassing question for this Issue could be the following: “In what ways is the present context in Latin America reshaping Latin American Christian Theology?”.
This Special Issue on Latin American Christian Theology welcomes interdisciplinary contributions that seek to propose new approaches in light of the “new realities” shaping Latin American as a region, or any specific country in particular. By looking to the past, describing the present, and proposing a way forward, this Issue will contribute to a new body of knowledge within global Christianity in general, and Latin American studies in particular.
