Remembering Lived Lives is a religious historiography book that focuses on issues and theorists located primarily in Latin America. Instead of joining the chorus of contemporary European intellectuals like Slavoj Žižek, who insist on a renewed Eurocentrism, this study challenges both historians and theologians to take seriously the work done by theorists located in what Enrique Dussel calls the underside of modernity. This is an interdisciplinary work that opens with Karl Barth's outline for historical-theological study and closes with an analysis of the film The Mission. Written for both the history or theology instructor and student, it deals with subjects like church history, biography as theology, liberation theology as primary source material, photographs, and historical movies. ""Postcolonial in location, decolonial in agenda, and transoccidental in approach, Michael Jimenez's Remembering Lived Lives is a welcomed contribution to the fields of Latino/a Global Studies and world Christian history. Jimenez engages autonomous critical disciplines of the American Global South such as Dussel's theory of transmodernity, Mignolo's border thinking, and Anzaldua's mestiza consciousness to produce alternative historiographic routes, hence, pointing to the recovery and discovery of Christian knowledge from a different place, non-Eurocentered and yet not anti-Western."" --Oscar Garcia-Johnson, PhD, Associate Dean, Associate Professor of Theology & Latin American Studies, Center for the Study of Hispanic Church and Community, Fuller Theological Seminary ""Michael Jimenez's Remembering Lived Lives is a turning point in thinking through the critical encounters between theology and history. The vast catholicity of his learning pushes what critical thinkers have done over the last quarter of a century towards new horizons, even beyond the anticipation of those thinkers he examines with unsurpassed precision and tenacity. A brilliant tour de force!"" --Hamid Dabashi, Columbia University Michael Jimenez (PhD, Fuller Theological Seminary) is an instructor of both history and theology at a number of schools in Southern California, including Azusa Pacific University.
