Introducción a la teología mestiza de San Agustín AETH

Introduction to the "Mestizo" Theology of Saint Augustine Spanish
Product Description

Aparte de los autores del Nuevo Testamento, ningún escritor ni pensador cristiano ha dejado en la vida y pensamiento de la iglesia a través de los siglos una hella que pueda compararse a la de San Agustín… fue a través de los ojos de Agustín que la cristiandad medieval de habla latina leyó las Escrituras y compriendió la fe.  Cuando, mil años más tarde, aquella cristiandad occidental se dividió como resultado de la Reforma protestante, ambos bandos del gran debate reclamaban la autoridad de Agustín, cada cual en apoyo de sus posturas.  Hasta el día de hoy, la inmensa mayoría de los cristianos, al ver por ejemplo las epístolas de Pablo, lo hace – sin siquiera saberlo – a través de los ojos de Agustín.

The subject of “mestizaje”—the in-between-ness of living between two cultures, and belonging at once to both and to neither of the two—is a crucial theme in U.S. Hispanic reflection today, theological as well as not. This book is, as its title says, a basic introduction to the thought of Saint Augustine. But it takes into account the dual roots of Augustine himself, his African mother on the one hand, and his Roman father and Greco-Roman education on the other. These two were at tension throughout his life and help us understand much of the drama leading to his conversion as well as his theology.
