Publishers Description
The groundbreaking work in Hispanic theology, relates the story of the Galilean Jesus to the story of a new mestizo people.

In this work, which marked the arrival of a new era of Hispanic/Latino theology in the United States, Virgilio Elizondo described the "Galilee principle": "What human beings reject, God chooses as his very own". This principle is well understood by Mexican-Americans, for whom mestizaje -- the mingling of ethnicity, race, and culture -- is a distinctive feature of their identity. In the person of Jesus, whose marginalized Galilean identity also marked him as a mestizo, the Mexican-American struggle for identity and new life becomes luminous.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Thought provoking book  Jul 12, 2001
This book changed my view on how the experiences of Chicanos were represented by showing a parallel between Galilean Jews and Chicanos. It is refreshening and liberating. A well read book, and not too heavy on writing style. Easy to read and comprehend on what the author's trying to describe.
Galilean Journey, understanding of differences  Jul 7, 2001
Galilean Journey is one of the best books I have read in a very long time. I would have enjoyed it more had the language been in simpler terms, but it defined a culture very different from mine, in such a way, that I will view the world, never the same.
Story of hope for marginalized people  Jan 12, 1999
This book is a short, effective treatment of much forgotten aspect of the gospels--the liberative aspect. Fluid and knowledgable, Elizondo backs each point amply with gospel text and other research. While Elizondo focuses primarily on two marginalized groups, the Biblical Galileans and the Mexican-Americans of today, in no way are the ideas exclusive to the two. The liberative aspect of the gospel is easily applicable to all, since all humans are oppressed by sin. Elizondo's prose is light and comprehensible, which is uncharacteristic of many books of theology. The book shouldn't take one long to read, and it is worth the small amount of time spent reading it.
