“[A] powerful debut. . . . This persuasive testament will appeal to Christians interested in the lesser-known women of the Bible.”–Publishers Weekly

“Armas expertly weaves her own abuelita’s history of personal faith and resistance into each chapter and intersects it with biblical text, creating an approachable work.”–Library Journal

What if some of our greatest theologians wouldn’t be considered theologians at all?

Kat Armas, a second-generation Cuban American, grew up on the outskirts of Miami’s famed Little Havana neighborhood. Her earliest theological formation came from her grandmother, her abuelita, who fled Cuba during the height of political unrest and raised three children alone after her husband passed away. Combining personal storytelling with biblical reflection, Armas shows us how voices on the margins–those often dismissed, isolated, and oppressed because of their gender, socioeconomic status, or lack of education–have more to teach us about following God than we realize.

Abuelita Faith tells the story of unnamed and overlooked theologians in society and in the Bible–mothers, grandmothers, sisters, and daughters–whose survival, strength, resistance, and persistence teach us the true power of faith and love. The author’s exploration of abuelita theology will help people of all cultural and ethnic backgrounds reflect on the abuelitas in their lives and ministries and on ways they can live out abuelita faith every day.
