For one week in May of 2007, hundreds of bishops from throughout Latin America gathered in Brazil at the Shrine of Our Lady of Aparecida for the Fifth General Conference of the Bishops of Latin America. The essays in this volume—written by ten of the foremost scholars of Latin American theology and the church in Latin America—examine the official documents from the conference and assess the bishops’ strategies for dealing with globalization, discipleship and missions, structural sin, the preferential option for the poor, and the future for the Catholic Church in Latin America.
