Jon Sobrino's qualifications as a theologian and the importance of his theological work are universally acknowledged, but the orthodoxy of his work and the orthopraxis of the activity it sets in motion are controversial. Sobrino responds to critics in this collection of articles on the theme of Jesus of Nazareth and his relevance to Christian life and faith in Latin America.
The christology Sobrino argues for affirms belief in the divinity of Jesus and the centrality of Jesus' relationship with the poor and oppressed. It is, as Juan Alfaro says in the Foreword, a christology springing from Christian faith as lived in the historical situation of the Latin American people.
