Scripture and tradition historically have played a major role in Christianity. Dr. Furst (Catholic tradition) and Dr. Lozano (Baptist tradition) will introduce particular ways
in which Latinos/as, as Baptists and Catholics, have related to these two theological sources. This introduction will cover commonalities and divergences, as different
traditions have used these theological sources in specific ways. In addition, cultural issues have affected the understanding of the Bible and tradition.
Renata Furst, Ph.D., is Associate Professor of Scripture and Spirituality at Oblate School of Theology. In Scripture she is specifically interested in prophetic literature in the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, biblical hermeneutics, wisdom literature, the Pentateuch, and
Hispanic/Latino(a) biblical interpretation.
Nora O. Lozano, Ph.D., is executive director of the Latina Leadership Institute and professor of theological studies at Baptist University of the Américas in San Antonio, TX.
Her academic interests are centered in the areas of systematic, Hispanic, Latin American, and women’s theologies as well as leadership studies.
