Overview

The liberation theology of Juan Luis Segundo, S.J., is examined in light of Segundo's own evangelical commitment to connect "faith" and "works." This book argues that the principal thesis of Segundo's theology is that faith and faith works (defined as either "love" or "ideology") need to be distinguished, but not separated; a Pauline connection that has been severely overlooked in contemporary theology. Contents: Introduction; THE FAITH THAT WORKS; Juan Luis Segundo's Theology of "Faith" and "Faith's Works"; Biblical Hermeneutics, Revelation, and Pauline Theology; THE FAITH THAT WORKS IN DISPUTE; Segundo's Theology in the Context of Contemporary Catholic and Protestant Theology; Segundo and Luther on "Faith" and "Faith Works"; FOUNDATIONS FOR THE FAITH THAT WORKS; The Inherent Problems in Segundo's Theological Presupposition; Conclusion: Toward Dialogue on the Relationship Between "Faith" and "Faith Works"; Appendix: The Life and Works of Juan Luis Segundo, S.J. (from 1925 to 1994).
