Episode: What is salvation? What does it mean that Christ frees us? What is liberation theology? Why is there such a fuss about liberation theology anyway? In this episode, Dr. Jules Martinez-Olivieri joins co-host Amy Hughes to talk about his work on Christology and liberation and participation.
Guest: Jules A. Martinez-Olivieri, PhD., is an Associate Professor of Theology and Director of the Masters in Theological Studies at Trinity International University in Florida. Dr. Martinez's research interests range from Christology, trinitarian theology, political theologies, and missional theology. His first book, A Visible Witness: Christology, Liberation and Participation (Minneapolis, MN: Fortress Press, 2016), is available in English and Spanish (Publicaciones Kerygma). As a professor, Dr. Martínez has a rich and diverse teaching background, having taught at seminaries in Puerto Rico, Bolivia, Guatemala, Perú, and the United States. As an ordained minister, his broad pastoral experience includes serving as a pastor in Latino/a churches in Illinois and church planter in Puerto Rico. It was these very commitments which, in the aftermath of hurricanes Irma and María in 2017, led him to co-found The Christ Collaborative, an interdenominational initiative focused on disaster relief and community development. He lives in Miami with his family.
