(p.91) 5 The Heartland of Pentecostalism
The Rebirth of Latin American Christianity

Pentecostalism and Charismatic Catholicism transformed the religious landscape of Latin America in the period between 1970 and 2000. Contemporary praise songs, “spiritual warfare,” speaking in tongues, prophecy, and supernatural healing became common features of churches across the region. Despite the disdain with which the intelligentsia treated them, Pentecostals and Catholic Charismatics were not the fringe but rather the two heavyweights fighting for the title of most influential religious movement in Latin America. The chapter devotes special attention to Argentina’s Pentecostal leaders, including Omar Cabrera, Carlos Annacondia, Hector Giménez, and Claudio Friedzón.
