1 Review
A groundbreaking study of the contemporary encounter between Catholic missionaries and Aymara Indians in highland Bolivia, this book is the first ethnography to focus both on the evangelizers and the evangelized. Elucidating the workings of that original global institution, the Catholic Church, Andrew Orta explores the pastoral shift away from liberation theology that dominated Latin American missionization up until the mid-1980s to the recent "theology of inculturation."
