Product Description

Jos Luis Avenda o en La influencia del protestantismo de EE. UU. o la American Religion en el mundo evang lico de Am rica Latina expone uno de los fen menos m s debatidos de los ltimos a os en Am rica Latina: el ascenso de visibilidad social y tracci n p blica de la iglesia evang lica. El crecimiento demogr fico, la presencia cada vez mayor en medios y redes sociales y las incursiones en la arena pol tica despiertan todo tipo de reacciones en un continente hist ricamente cat lico, aunque actualmente globalizado y en proceso de secularizaci n. Las voces, desde las m s esperanzadas hasta las m s cr ticas, a menudo abundan en estereotipos; la pregunta por lo evang lico -sus caracter sticas, sus luces y sombras, su unidad en medio de una enorme diversidad- sigue en pie.

En esta anal tica y minuciosa obra, Jos Luis Avenda o descifra el misterio detr s de los m ltiples rostros de la iglesia evang lica latinoamericana. El foco de an lisis es la sombra que ejerce sobre ella la American Religion: esa forma de religiosidad que encarna y glorifica los valores de la American Way of Life. Dos conceptos le sirven como eje para entender el cristianismo: la identidad -aquello que la revelaci n tiene de nico e inmutable- y la relevancia -aquello que evoluciona, en dialogo con la cultura-.

The influence of U.S. Protestantism or "American Religion" in the Latin American evangelical world

Jos Luis Avenda o in The influence of U.S. Protestantism in the Latin American evangelical world Identity and Relevance, exposes one of the most debated phenomena of recent years in Latin America is the rise of social visibility and public traction of the evangelical church. The demographic growth, the increasing presence in the media and social networks, the incursions in the political arena arouse all kinds of reactions in a historically Catholic continent, although currently globalized and in the process of secularization. Voices, from the most hopeful to the most critical, often abound in stereotypes; the question of evangelicalism-its characteristics, its lights and shadows, its unity in the midst of enormous diversity-remains unanswered.

In this analytical and meticulous work, Jos Luis Avenda o unravels the mystery behind the multiple faces of the Latin American evangelical church. The focus of analysis is the shadow cast over it by American Religion: that form of religiosity that embodies and glorifies the values of the American Way of Life. Two concepts serve as the axis for understanding Christianity: identity -that which revelation is unique and immutable- and relevance -that which evolves, in dialogue with culture-.
