Galilean journey : the Mexican-American promise by Virgilio P Elizondo( Book )

16 editions published between 1983 and 2007 in English and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The groundbreaking work in Hispanic theology, relates the story of the Galilean Jesus to the story of a new mestizo people.In this work, which marked the arrival of a new era of Hispanic/Latino theology in the United States, Virgilio Elizondo described the "Galilee principle": "What human beings reject, God chooses as his very own". This principle is well understood by Mexican-Americans, for whom mestizaje -- the mingling of ethnicity, race, and culture -- is a distinctive feature of their identity. In the person of Jesus, whose marginalized Galilean identity also marked him as a mestizo, the Mexican-American struggle for identity and new life becomes luminous.--Amazon.com
