I worked my way through it. This is not the kind of book you run down to your local indie store to gobble up. This is the kind of book from which you pull a chapter to use as a citation in your master’s thesis (although, you should really go back to the original publication if you can). It would also work well as the textbook for a junior-level college course. Religious studies folks, go ahead and get it; everybody else, just move on. What is exactly what I intend to do.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0842025855, Paperback)

Latin America has long been strongly identified with the Roman Catholic Church. Yet the face of religion is changing in the region, as is evidenced by new landmarks that now appear on the social and geographic landscape.

To date, most books on major religions in Latin America are specific to one religion only, and do not offer a comparative analysis. On Earth as It Is in Heaven: Religion in Modern Latin America not only examines the region's religious mÈlange, but also gives equal coverage to other religious variations. The nine articles in this volume examine the variety of religious expression in Latin America, focusing upon Catholicism, popular Indian and African religious forms, and new elements such as Protestantism and Mormonism.

Offering a comprehensive focus on one of the most prevalent social institutions in Latin American society, On Earth as It Is in Heaven is an excellent text for courses in Latin American history, religion, anthropology, sociology, and political science.
