Liberation Through Reconciliation

The third chapter argues that Sobrino’s approach to spirituality reflects both a general structure relevant to all human beings and a more specific Christian structure, namely the following of Jesus. Focusing on the general structure, it examines the foundational anthropological elements that undergird Sobrino’s spirituality—that is, the human dispositions that enable the proper relationship between any human person and reality. This examination is complemented with an analysis of the presuppositions that ground his engagement of the theological task. Such analysis sheds light on how his spirituality enriches and organizes all of his theology and demonstrates how these same elements structure his understanding of the demands, concerns, and purpose of the theological enterprise.
