Overview

"Association of Catholic Publishers 2022 Excellence in Publishing Awards: First Place, Theology Catholic Media Association, Honorable Mention in Theology: Morality, Ethics, Christology, Mariology, and Redemption Unveiling divine mysteries across continents and centuries. Revelation in the Vernacular retrieves a hermeneutics of the vernacular that is rooted en lo cotidiano, in everyday life and experience. Traversing time and geography, Ruiz remaps a theology of revelation done latinamente, beginning with sixteenth-century encounters of Spanish colonizers with Indigenous peoples in the Caribbean. Drawing on the theology of the Incarnation articulated by Fray Luis de Leon (1527-91), he offers rich resources for interreligious engagement by believers in today's religiously diverse world. Through an analysis of the documents of the 2019 Amazonian Synod, including Querida Amazonia, the Postsynodal Exhortation by Pope Francis, he explores a culture of encounter and dialogue that has been a hallmark of this pontificate. From the inscriptions in the caves of la Isla de Mona through the writings of the Latin American Bishops (CELAM), this book establishes a solid basis on which to discern the ""Seeds of the Word"" in our times."

A fascinating read! Moving back and forth across the Atlantic, this book charts traces of divine mystery revealed in cultural expressions. A surprising 16th-century encounter between an indigenous Caribbean people and the Spaniards colonizing them? Yes. A dramatic 21st-century encounter between indigenous Amazonian people, a supportive pope, and their critics? Indeed. Using original sources, this study lays a trail of clues to the possibility that the self-disclosure of God might be greater than one has imagined or understood.---Elizabeth Johnson, CSJ, Distinguished Professor Emerita, Fordham University


A thorough and engaging study, which traces the Church's long-standing notions of 'seeds of the Word' across the spectrum of religious experiences, especially in Latin America. Beginning with an astounding set of inscriptions by Spanish explorers in a cave on Puerto Rico's Isla de Mona and continuing through 16th-, 20th-, and 21st-century studies by Church teachers, leaders, and councils, Ruiz demonstrates a nuanced understanding and affirmation of divine revelation across cultures and centuries.---Efrain Agosto, Visiting Professor of Latinx Studies and Religion, Williams College A fascinating read!
