Public Theology in Brazil

Social and Cultural Challenges

Edited by: Eneida Jacobsen, Rudolf von Sinner, Roberto E. Zwetsch

Contributions by: Luis Marcos Sander, Hedy L. Hofmann

This book brings social and cultural issues to the fore that are especially important for, but not exclusive to, the Brazilian religious context. How to deal with cultural, ethnic, and religious diversity? What is the role of religious education in public schools? Is there a convergence between human rights, religion, and theology? In what way have churches and social movements contributed toward the res publica? The book's contributors discuss these issues in dialogue with the concept of public theology, evaluating its pertinence and shaping its meaning in a Latin American perspective.
