New Faculty Book: Protesting poverty

Jun 2, 2023

Protesting poverty : protestants, social ethics, and the poor in Brazil by Raimundo Barreto; translated by Princeton Seminary PhD student Stephen Di Trolio Coakley has been cataloged - BV639.P6 B36513 2023 - and added to the collection.

From the publisher's summary: "At a time when Latin American Protestantism has increasingly become a force to be reckoned with in the public realm and has attracted growing scholarly interest, this book contributes to the understanding of the sociopolitical relevance of the Protestant presence in Brazilian history and society. Raimundo Barreto argues that progressive Evangélicx Christianity, a branch of Brazilian Christianity that combines charismatic spirituality and sociopolitical progressive action, offers valuable sources for Christian social ethics in contemporary Brazil."
