The Poor in the Ecclesiology of Juan Luis Segundo


Mary Kaye Nealen

Juan Luis Segundo, Uruguayan Jesuit (1925- ), is one of the contemporary theologians for whom poor and dehumanized people figure prominently in their work. This timely book explores the theological meaning of the poor in Segundo's writing and analyzes the role of the poor in his theology of the church. It develops and evaluates Segundo's argument that the church is meant to be a minority prophetic community at the service of the dehumanized persons of the world.
Contents: This work explores the role and identity of the poor in Juan Luis Segundo's theology. It locates the church's relationship to the poor in gospel fidelity, prophetic community, and service.
