Many Faces, One Church both captures and facilitates a seismic shift in the who, what, where, when, why, and how of Catholic theology today. Along with a diverse group of theologians who represent the many faces of the church, editors Peter C. Phan and Diana Hayes recast the story of the church in America by including immigrant groups either forgotten or ignored and, in light of these new and not-so-new voices, retooling the theological framework of Catholicism itself.
Peter C. Phan, S.T.D., Ph.D., D.D., is the Ignacio Ellacuria Professor of Catholic Social Thought at Georgetown University. He is the author of many books including the trilogy: Christianity with an Asian Face (2003); In Our Tongues (2003); and Being Religious Interreligiously (2004). Diana Hayes, J.D., Ph.D., S.T.D., is associate professor of theology at Georgetown University. She is the author of many books including Hagar's Daughters: Womanist Ways of Being in the World (1995) and And Still We Rise: An Introduction to Black Liberation Theology (1996).
