By Maxwell E. Johnson

When Our girl of Guadalupe looked as if it would Juan Diego at Tepeyac, she despatched him to the bishop with the message that she wanted a hermitage the place everybody will be welcomed and may adventure her love. And but, until eventually lately, the message of Guadalupe has been restricted to Catholics, rather Mexicans and Mexican american citizens. With this quantity of essays, despite the fact that, a number of Protestant theologians interact the culture surrounding Our girl of Guadalupe to illustrate that she has a spot in Protestant church buildings. The multicultural dynamic of latest church buildings, Catholic and Protestant alike, implies that cultural parts of people's religion can't be brushed off. really, they're to be explored and meditated, in all likelihood embraced and built-in into the wider church lifestyles. by means of severely and thoughtfully enticing the Guadalupe tale, the authors during this quantity offer insights on how Our girl might be welcomed into the prayer existence and worship of Protestant communities.
