About this book

Over the past fifty years Brazil’s evangelical community has increased from five to twenty-five percent of the population. This volume’s authors use statistical overview, historical narrative, personal anecdote, social-scientific analysis, and theological inquiry to map out this emerging landscape. The book’s thematic center pivots on the question of how Brazilian evangelicals are exerting their presence and effecting change in the public life of the nation. Rather than fixing its focus on the interior life of Brazilian evangelicals and their congregations, the book’s attention is directed toward social expression: the ways in which Brazilian evangelicals are present and active in the common life of the nation.

Reviews

“For its coverage, depth, and acute relevance for all who hope to understand evangelicals in Brazil, this volume is a must read.   It is a mosaic fashioned from Brazil’s actual, ongoing historical circumstance.” (Serguem Jessui Silva, national representative, Tearfund Brasil)

“This outstanding collection of essays and articles examines Brazilian evangelicalism with rigor and sympathy.  The authors’ nuanced understanding of the difficult sociopolitical situations in which Brazilian evangelicals operate allows them both to appreciate genuine evangelical accomplishments and to criticize evangelical excesses and omissions.  I can’t think of a better book on Brazilian evangelicalism.” (Todd Hartch, Eastern Kentucky University, USA)

“This book contributes significantly to the study of the public place of religion and its public representations in Latin America. The various contributors’ interdisciplinary analysis of Brazilian evangelical Protestantism allows the reader not only to observe diverse strategies of evangelical engagement in public life, but also to rethink the implications of the evangelical factor in various fields of Brazilian society: civic participation, political engagement, environment thought and practice, and social policy.” (Rolando Pérez, Pontifical Catholic University of Peru)
