Originally written in Spanish, this book contains seven chapters, each on a basic Christian doctrine as it relates to the social responsibility of Christians and of the church.
Presents a unified, Bible-based rationale for the social ministry of Hispanic churches, and articulates the theological roots of social service, motivating clergy and lay leaders from Latino faith-based organizations and affirms their mission within their specific and very rich Christian traditions.
Written by the best known Roman Catholic Hispanic Theologian, Fr. Virgilio Elizondo, and his Protestant counterpart, Dr. Justo L. Gonazalez, this book is of great interest to both Catholics and Protestants who follow Latino theology. They are also of interest to others who are engaged in community ministries, social action, and similar ministries. It could easily be used in church study groups on these issues.
