Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Los Protestantes: An Introduction to Latino Protestantism in the United StateS≪/i>, the first to provide a broad introduction to this rapidly growing population. At its core is an exploration of the group's demographics, denominational tendencies, and potential for continued growth. Current information is supported by a survey of the history of Latino Protestants in the United States, which dates back to the efforts of missionaries in the mid-19th century.

Los ProtestanteS≪/i> brings together data from formerly disparate studies of various aspects of the community to create an insightful overview. The work presents brief descriptions of principal denominations and organizations among Latino Protestants. It notes marked differences that separate Latino Protestants from other U.S. Protestants, and it examines an evolving Protestant/Latino ethno-religious identity. Readers will come away from this study more clearly understanding the current state of Latino Protestantism in the United States, as well as where Latino Protestants fit in the overall picture of U.S. religion.

Book News Annotation:

Martnez (Hispanic studies and pastoral leadership, Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, California) describes Latino Protestants as a religious minority within an ethnic minority in the US, but notes that both the Latino population and the number of Latino Protestants are growing. He examines the movement from such perspectives as Protestantes by the numbers, streams of Latino Protestantism, similarities and differences with other US Protestants, and faces of Latino Protestantism.
