Although many consider Central America a thoroughly Catholic region, Protestant organizations based in the United States began in the 1970s to send missionaries to Latin America in a concerted effort to convert Catholics to Protestantism. In this penetrating analysis of the social and political implications of Protestantism, focusing particularly on the fast-growing Pentecostal groups, Hallum provides a thorough overview of this complex phenomenon.
