Ondina E. Gonzalez and Justo L. Gonzalez have written the definitive work on the history of Christianity in Latin America. Both content and style will make it the most valuable textbook on the subject.

Ondina Gonzalez and Justo Gonzalez have assembled a truly dazzling array of primary sources that document the complex, bloody, and surprisingly grace-filled history of Latin America and Latin Americans. This rich tapestry is, however, to mix a metaphor, just the tip of the iceberg! What the reader realizes is how much more complicated things are, how much more there is to read and know, if the legacy of Latinos/as is to be completely understood in our twenty-first century.
-Steve Bevins, SVD,

A veritable treasure-trove of texts illuminating five centuries of Latin American religious history for the twenty-first-century reader. The choice and presentation shows sound scholarship and ecumenical sensitivity. This book will be an ideal companion to any course exploring the history of Christian faith in Latin America.
