The Experience of the Latino Church in the United States

Book Presentation by Bishop Ricardo Ramirez and Edgar Beltran Acosta

Thursday, September 14, 2017 | 8 PM | Altamira Libros | 219 Miracle Mile, Coral Gables


Power from the Margins: The Emergence of the Latino in the Church and in Society

Ricardo Ramirez, C.B.S., is Bishop Emeritus of the Diocese of Las Cruces, New Mexico. In his book, Bishop Ramirez draws from his rich pastoral experience as a clergy leader and as a Mexican American, to offer a powerful and intimate testimony about “the foundation and legacy of Latino faith, the challenges we face, and to celebrate the next generation.”

A History of Latin Hispanics in the United States

Edgar Beltran is a renowned pastor and theologian who in 1971 pioneered the National Hispanic Encuentros in the United States. His book offers a comprehensive narrative about the religious experience of the Latin community in the U.S. and how it has been continually nurtured and informed by the sending countries of Latin America.
