Thoughtful and research-based

The central thesis of this book is that the enormous conversion to protestanism among Guatemalans during the past 40 years can be traced to the destruction of traditional communities as a result of war, violence, and migration. The adoption of a new religion provides converts a sense of order and identity. This book, carefully researched and beautifully written, provides a compelling argument in support of the thesis. I would highly recommend this book to all readers who are interested in Guatemalan history and social studies.

absurd

evangelical protestants like rios montt and his american supporters have been responsible for "public violence" and the destruction of traditional community ties rather than any sort of positive force in the country. It's introduction was mainly a ploy to curb the "dangerous" popularity of Liberation theology and part of a two-pronged attempt to return the population to an acceptable level of passive subjugation. When this failed, massacres occured. It's absurd to claim that the influx of protestant missionaries and money into the camps of the despicable Guatemalan right have had any sort of positive effect whatsoever, and to ignore the cost in lives of the policies excersised by those who spread such values at gunpoint.
