En la Lucha / In the Struggle: Elaborating a Mujerista Theology, Tenth-Anniversary Edition

Ten years ago En la Lucha offered the first systematic presentation of mujerista theology – the liberating religious reflection of Hispanic women – giving voice to the everyday struggles and insights of Hispanic women and offering a new form of contextual theology.

Since that time, Isasi-Díaz's work has been widely praised, studied, and emulated in Hispanic and other contextual theologies, and she is widely acknowledged to be mujerista theology's major spokeswoman. This anniversary edition places the central thrust of mujerista theology in the ongoing context of North American society, brings a heightened sense of the specificity and complexity of Hispanic identity, and reflects further on the global implications of the North American Hispanic context. With a new Introduction, updates to each chapter, and new Spanish-language summaries of the chapters, the new edition is a sterling presentation of the sources, aims, and truths of mujerista theology.

"En la Lucha brings a systematic methodological reflection to the doing of what is and must remain very much the grassroots praxis of Latinas...."
– Rosemary Radford Ruether

"Ada María's book is an affirmation of hope in our struggles for justice. She shows the motives of our journey toward liberation rooted in Latina cultures and our condition as mestiza women.... Her insights will creatively influence both academic and religious communities."
– María Pilar Aquino

"Her most complete and compelling work.... A remarkable achievement. Hers is a conscious, active, and reflective participation in the communal struggle for the fullness of life and self-determination for all Latinas, especially the poor."
Review for Religious

"En la Lucha is the charter document of mujerista theology.... A noteworthy contribution to creative contextually based theology in North America. It is also a sign of the increasingly active role of Hispanic women in North American society and church."
