BOOK LAUNCH

Book Cover: Suffering and Salvation in Ciudad Juárez, by Nancy Pineda-Madrid

November 9, 2011

Presenter:  Nancy Pineda-Madrid, STM associate professor of theology and Latino/Latina Ministry


In this presentation, Professor Pineda-Madrid discusses her new book (Fortress Press, 2011), which re-conceives traditional Christian notions of salvation by closely attending to the experience of the embattled women of Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, where hundreds have been slain.   There, survivors have found healing and salvation in solidarity and community practices that resist rather than acquiesce in the violence.
