The Theology of the People

An English translation of Pope Francis and the Theology of the People (Orbis Books) by School of Theology and Ministry Associate Professor of the Practice Rafael Luciani has been published. Originally written in Spanish, the book focuses on the pastoral and theological vision of Pope Francis, particularly his embrace of a type of liberation theology called the theology of the people. Pope Francis and the Theology of the People was used in a course Luciani taught at the STM. According to Luciani, Boston College was the first college or university in the U.S. to offer a course on the Latin American roots and the theology of Pope Francis. Luciani was able to present Pope Francis with the English translation during a private audience he had with the pontiff in November. More from BC News. | National Catholic Reporter review
