Samenvatting

The explosion of the Evangelical movement in Latin America beginning in the last half of the 20th century has changed the face of a continent. Many men have redefined themselves through a religious conversion to Evangelicalism, which challenges notions of machismo. This book explores why they would choose to do so. While they abandon drinking, promiscuity, domestic violence, and aggression, Evangelical converts maintain a strict set of gender roles, which they perceived as a divine mandate. This dramatic change is made possible through the device of an Evangelical Worldview, experienced and lived as cosmic narrative that obligates a Christian masculinity.

Recensie(s)

This provocative book explores the often under-represented topic of religion and masculinity in ways that raise thoughtful and challenging questions. Written by an anthropologist of Salvadoran religious culture, this book provides an insightful discussion and ethnographic details of the religious construction of the how and why of male identity, and the variable forms it may take in the future. -- Harold J. Recinos, Southern Methodist University
