Rubén Rosario Rodríguez is an associate professor of Systematic Theology at Saint Louis University. His teaching and research interests range from comparative religious ethics, to theological anthropology, to liberation/political theologies; his most recent publications include Christian Martyrdom and Political Violence (Cambridge University Press, 2017) and Dogmatics After Babel (Westminster John Knox Press, 2018).

David A. Sánchez, Associate Professor of Early Christianity at Loyola Marymount University, died unexpectedly on Saturday, April 6, 2019. He was a pioneering Latinx Biblical scholar whose impact reached beyond his discipline and included the Political Theology Network. We have asked mentors, colleagues, students, and friends to reflect on his many contributions.
