About-

In his introduction, Paul Sigmund states that the growing religious pluralism in Latin America is one of several reasons why the trend toward democracy that has marked the last two decades may endure. Nevertheless, Sigmund notes that this new pluralism, particularly the growth of Protestantism, has led to tensions that must be resolved. Religious Freedom and Evangelization in Latin America provides an indispensable resource for understanding the range of issues confronting the continent, offering Catholic as well as Protestant perspectives, and trenchant analyses of the situation in different countries, including Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Cuba.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"By presenting information about the history of Latin America's religious struggles, the book provides a framework to help readers understand the beliefs and practices of those immigrants [from Latin America] as they build and establish churches here."
--Los Angeles Times

"Provides a valuable overview of religious freedom, religious competition, and evangelization in contemporary Latin America. Despite the abundant literature on religion in Latin America, the book focuses on important issues that have not been widely studied.
--Scott P. Mainwaring, University of Notre Dame

"Paul Sigmund's collection has reaped the work of some of Latin America's most renowned contemporary scholars to bring us a much needed compendium. Because of its breadth and the historical background provided provided, this work is an essential aid to anyone who hopes to understand contemporary Latin America, be they students, scholars or missionaries."
--Mary M. McGlone CSJ, PhD
Mission Coordinator of Congregational Leadership Team
