By Juan José Tamayo Acosta
Ha llegado el momento de poner en práctica en l. a. teología el lema de los angeles Ilustración: ¡Atrévete a pensar! Religiones, teología, espiritualidad, ética y política: he aquí los temas centrales de este libro, que replantea y reformula los núcleos fundamentales de las religiones y, especialmente, del cristianismo. Juan José Tamayo intenta dar respuesta a algunos de los desafíos de nuestro tiempo: los angeles diversidad cultural, el pluriverso religioso, el feminismo, los angeles nueva conciencia ecológica y los angeles lucha contra los angeles pobreza. Y lo hace en diálogo interdisciplinar, desde el lugar hermenéutico de los movimientos sociales que trabajan por Otro Mundo Posible. Las religiones ya no pueden elaborar un discurso universalista que surja de l. a. cosmovisión occidental. Querer imponer los conceptos de igualdad y libertad que surgen de l. a. Ilustración europea se convertiría en imperialismo intelectual. Para evitarlo, Tamayo incorpora los angeles categoría de los angeles interculturalidad, que va más allá de los angeles inculturación de l. a. fe y del multiculturalismo, y elabora un nuevo paradigma: el de l. a. teología intercultural e interreligiosa de los angeles liberación en perspectiva de género Ahí radica l. a. originalidad de este libro.
