Preaching the Teaching: Hispanics, Homiletics, and Catholic Social Justice Doctrine

Front Cover

University of Scranton Press, 2005 - Religion - 228 pages
Preaching the Teaching reevaluates the Catholic Church's doctrine of social justice as it relates to the Church's flourishing Hispanic communities and their particular concerns, including issues of domestic violence, racism, and immigration policy. Each chapter begins by examining a theme-specific document from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, followed by related essays from leading Hispanic theologians and a helpful guide to appropriate scripture readings. Preaching the Teaching will be an invaluable resource for those who prepare homilies for Hispanic congregations as well as for scholars and students of religious studies and social justice.
