Back on the podcast is my friend and former teacher, Dr. Ruben Rosario Rodriguez, to talk about abortion, diversity, and disability in relation to the Atlantic’s December cover story on the Last Children of Downs Syndrome.

His first book, Racism and God-Talk: A Latino/a Perspective (2008), won the 2011 Alpha Sigma Nu Book Award for Theology. He has contributed to two recent collections, The Wiley Blackwell Companion to Latino/a Theology (2015) and Immigrant Neighbors among Us: Immigration across Theological Traditions (2015), and is editor of the forthcoming T&T Clark Companion to Political Theology (2018). His most recent monographs include Christian Martyrdom and Political Violence: A Comparative Theology with Judaism and Islam (Cambridge University Press, July 2017), and the forthcoming Dogmatics After babel: Beyond the Theologies of Word and Culture (Westminster John Knox Press, March 2018).
