This book discusses how the competitive environment of Latin America's social life has facilitated religious innovation in different regional and national settings.

Industry Reviews

The present volume serves as a useful corrective to the flood of impressionistic works and reflects the increasing maturation of the field...it provides a solid basis for understanding the actual role of religion, and particularly the Catholic Church, in contemporary Latin America...[the book] provides not only a realistic view of the role of religion in contemporary Latin America, but also a healthy critique of much of the literature in the field.--Journal of Latin American Studies
