Product Description

Hispanics are the fast-growing minority group in the U.S. Including Puerto Ricans, Cubans, and Mexicans, they are changing society and the church. As a second-generation Puerto Rican, born and reared in El Barrio of New York city, Manuel Ortiz knows firsthand what it is like to be a Hispanic in the United States. As a sociologist, he recognizes the exciting potential for the future of the church--if leadership development is undertaken.

Ortiz first explores the unique needs and concerns of Hispanics in the U.S. Then he turns to key missiological issues, including Protestant-Catholic relationships, justice, racial reconciliation, and ecclesiastical structures. Ortiz has interviewed numerous Hispanic leaders working in a variety of context and describes their models for ministry. Finally the book focuses on leadership training and education, with a particular emphasis on developing second generation leadership.

As a second-generation Puerto Rican, born and reared in El Barrio of New York City, Manuel Ortiz knows first-hand what it is like to be a Hispanic in the U.S. As a sociologist, he recognizes the exciting potential for the future of the church--if leadership development is undertaken. Oritz first explores the unique needs and concerns of Hispanics in the U.S. Then he turns to key missiological issues, including Protestant-Catholic relationships, justice, racial reconcilliation and ecclesiastical structures. Ortiz has interviewed numerous Hispanic leaders working in a variety of contexts and describes their models for ministry. Finally, the book focuses on leadership training and education, with a particular emphasis on developing second-generation leadership. The sleeping giant must not be ignored. This is a book that will awaken awareness of the possibilities of the Hispanic church.
