This timely anthology surveys Latin American developments through the eyes of Christians of all major churches and every socio-historical perspective. Their writings offer the basis for ecumenical understanding and cooperation, even though these churches seem at one level engaged in divisive combat throughout Latin America. New Face of the Church in Latin America offers thoughtful and nuanced evaluations of churches there in current conditions of economic and social malaise. It provides important information and perspective, especially when the story - in the U.S. in particular - is often reduced to such sensational and simplistic queries as, "Is Latin America turning Protestant?" or, "Why is the Catholic Church 'losing' Latin America?" The contributors to New Face of the Church in Latin America provide firsthand accounts and insider perspectives on such issues as Protestant evangelism and base communities, Catholic renewal efforts, Native American inculturation, and new developments in liberation theology. Rather than add to enflamed rhetoric, these noted authors - Catholic and Protestant, women and men - show that there remains ample ground for richer, more finely-textured understanding and collaboration between supposed adversaries in lands where religious faith is a vital component of life and history.

One cannot understand Latin America without understanding the history of the Catholic Church in the region. Catholicism has been predominant in Latin America and it has played a definitive role in its development. It helped to spur the conquest of the New World with its emphasis on missions to the indigenous peoples, controlled many aspects of the colonial economy, and played key roles in the struggles for Independence. The History of the Catholic Church in Latin America offers a concise yet far-reaching synthesis of this institution’s role from the earliest contact between the Spanish and native tribes until the modern day, the first such historical overview available in English. John Frederick Schwaller looks broadly at the forces which formed the Church in Latin America and which caused it to develop in the unique manner in which it did. While the Church is often characterized as monolithic, the author carefully showcases its constituent parts—often in tension with one another—as well as its economic function and its role in the political conflicts within the Latin America republics. Organized in a chronological manner, the volume traces the changing dynamics within the Church as it moved from the period of the Reformation up through twentieth century arguments over Liberation Theology, offering a solid framework to approaching the massive literature on the Catholic Church in Latin America. Through his accessible prose, Schwaller offers a set of guideposts to lead the reader through this complex and fascinating history.

From the arrival of the conquistadores in the fifteenth century to the spread of the Pentecostal movement today, Christianity has moulded, coerced, refashioned, and enriched Latin America. Likewise, Christianity has been changed, criticized, and renewed as it crossed the Atlantic. These changes now affect its practice and understanding, not only in South and Central America and the Caribbean, but also - through immigration and global communication - around the world. Focusing on this mutually constitutive relationship, Christianity in Latin America presents the important encounters between people, ideas, and events of this large, heterogeneous subject. In doing so, it takes readers on a fascinating journey of explorers, missionaries, farmers, mystics, charlatans, evangelists, dictators, and martyrs. This book offers an accessible and engaging review of the history of Christianity in Latin America with a widely ecumenical focus to foster understanding of the various forces shaping both Christianity and the region.

This extraordinary book encompasses the time period from the first Christian evangelists' arrival in Latin America to the dictators of the late twentieth century. With unsurpassed knowledge of Latin American history, John Lynch sets out to explore the reception of Christianity by native peoples and how it influenced their social and religious lives as the centuries passed. As attentive to modern times as to the colonial period, Lynch also explores the extent to which Indian religion and ancestral ways survived within the new Christian culture. The book follows the development of religious culture over time by focusing on peak periods of change: the response of religion to the Enlightenment, the emergence of the Church from the wars of independence, the Romanization of Latin American religion as the papacy overtook the Spanish crown in effective control of the Church, the growing challenge of liberalism and the secular state, and in the twentieth century, military dictators' assaults on human rights. Throughout the narrative, Lynch develops a number of special themes and topics. Among these are the Spanish struggle for justice for Indians, the Church's position on slavery, the concept of popular religion as distinct from official religion, and the development of liberation theology.

English summary: Following years of preparation, the author of the standard work The History of Christianity in Latin America (1978) here presents a perfectly new concept of his seminal textbook, which unfolds in a compact format the sum of a lifetime of research in this field.Hans-Juergen Prien's extensive teaching and research as Chair for Iberian and Latin American History (established by Richard Konetzke) has put him in a position to demonstrate the embeddedness of the history of the church in Latin America - as far as this is feasible within the framework of the Monographs on the History of the Church - in the main political, social, and economic developments of this subcontinent.The comprehensive list of sources and the bibliography attest to the fact that by now it has become almost impossible for a single scholar to acquire a firm command of the entire history of the denominationally extremely diverse Christianity of an entire subcontinent, spanning five hundred years. German description: Der Autor des Standardwerkes aDie Geschichte des Christentums in Lateinamerika (1978) legt nach langjahrigen Vorarbeiten in vollig neuer Konzeption ein Lehrbuch zum Christentum in Lateinamerika vor, das in kurzer Form die Summe seines Forscherlebens auf diesem Gebiet darstellt. Priens Lehrtatigkeit auf dem von Richard Konetzke begruendeten Lehrstuhl fuer Iberische und Lateinamerikanische Geschichte hat seinen Uberblick ueber die Politische Geschichte, Gesellschafts- und Wirtschaftsgeschichte Lateinamerikas wesentlich erweitert, so dass er die Einbettung der Kirchengeschichte in diese Gebiete immer wieder zu verdeutlichen versucht, soweit das im Rahmen der Reihe aKirchengeschichte in Einzeldarstellungen moglich ist. Das umfangreiche Quellen- und Literaturverzeichnis zeigt, dass es heute fuer einen einzelnen Forscher kaum noch moglich ist, die konfessionell stark zerklueftete Christentumsgeschichte eines ganzen Subkontinents ueber fuenf Jahrhunderte hinweg zu ueberblicken.

This compelling account of how Andean Christians have inculturated the Gospel and the challenges that confront them provides a real-world view of the urgent process of inculturation. In the context of pluri-cultural development of the church, this process is one that affirms that both culture and history are transformed by the Spirit of God. Inculturation surveys Andean culture and religious traditions, drawing from day-to-day experience in the transformation of education and social action, personal and communal life, spirituality, and the whole of Christian mission in today's world. It also discusses current evangelization trends worldwide, examining negative as well as positive examples of inculturation, and offers guidelines for future efforts.
