7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged.

Since that time, Isasi-Diaz's work has been widely praised, studied, and emulated in Hispanic and other contextual theologies, and she is widely acknowledged to be mujerista theology's major spokeswoman. This anniversary edition places the central thrust of mujerista theology in the ongoing context of North American society, brings a heightened sense of the specificity and complexity of Hispanic identity, and reflects further on the global implications of the North American Hispanic context. With a new Introduction, updates to each chapter, and new Spanish-language summaries of the chapters, the new edition is a sterling presentation of the sources, aims, and truths of mujerista theology.
