From the Publisher“Sabia’s interviews provide a penetrating look at the variety of perspectives that can be found even within the superficially homogeneous world of the Nicaraguan popular church. Her nuanced differentiation of the revolutionary Christian type from the reformist Christian type is helpful.” —Hispanic American Historical Review
"Debra Sabia explains what became of Nicaragua's Church of the Poor in this informative and up-to-date volume. Moving deftly between institutional analysis and revealing interviews, Sabia shows that Nicaragua, liberation theology's greatest success story, could not escape the problems that beset the movement elsewhere in the region. The book reflects our growing understanding of the complex ways in which religious faith translates into political action and how this complexity can both enrich and undermine religio-political movements."
