About this product
- DescriptionOf the thirty-seven million Latis living in the United States, nearly five million declare themselves to be either Pentecostal or Charismatic, and more convert every day. Lati Pentecostal Identity examines the historical and contemporary rise of Pentecostalism among Latis, their conversion from other deminations, and the difficulties involved in reconciling conflicts of ethnic and religious identity. The book also looks at how evangelical groups encourage the severing of ethnic ties in favor of spiritual community and the ambivalence Latis face when their faith fails to protect them from racial discrimination. Latis are t new to Pentecostalism; indeed, they have been becoming Pentecostal for more than a hundred years. Thus several generations have never belonged to any other faith. Yet, as Arlene M. S nchez Walsh articulates, the perception of adherents as Catholic converts persists, eliding the reality of a specific Lati Pentecostal population that both participates in the spiritual and material culture of the larger evangelical Christian movement and imprints that movement with its own experiences. Focusing on three groups of Lati Pentecostals/Charismatics-the Assemblies of God, Victory Outreach, and the Vineyard-S nchez Walsh considers issues such as the commodification of Lati evangelical culture, the Latinization of Pentecostalism, and the ways in which Lati Pentecostals have differentiated themselves from the larger Lati Catholic culture. Extensive fieldwork, surveys, and personal interviews inform her research and show how, in an overwhelmingly Euro-American demination, diverse Lati faith communities-U.S. Chica churches, pan-Latin American immigrant churches, and mixed Latin American and U.S. Lati churches-have carved out their own unique religious space.
