The authors examine popular religion as a vital source of new values and experiences as well as a source of pressure for change in the church, political life, and the social order as a whole and deal with the issues of poverty and the role of the poor within the church and political structures. Exploring areas from Nicaragua, El Salvador, Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, and Chile, the authors analyze the transformation in popular religion and reevaluate the growth of grassroots organizations.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Levine suggests that popular religion is a salient issue in Latin America, largely because it expresses the hopes and fears of key groups. . . . [This book] successfully presents the conflicts, characteristics, and themes of popular religion for scholars and laypersons alike.—Journal of Developing Areas
