From the Publisher"One of the best and most innovative treatments of progressive religion and the popular church in Nicaragua."
—Harry E. Vanden, University of South Florida
"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."
—Carol Ann Drogus, Hamilton College
