Beschrijving Oxford Handbooks: The Oxford Handbook of Latinx Christianities in the United States

The United States is in the midst of a demographic revolution. It is estimated that by 2050 Latinx Americans will make up thirty percent of the nation's total population. Most Latinx Americans today are Christian. And while, historically, most of those Latinx Christians have been Catholics, that is changing as well, as more Latinx Americans embrace Protestantism or other traditions and practices. Even within the U.S. Catholic Church the demographic changes are being
felt, as more than half of young American Catholics are Latinx.

The Oxford Handbook of Latinx Christianities in the United States provides an introduction to U.S. Latinx Christianities, helping readers better understand the largest minority group in the United States. The chapters are written by specialists in U.S. Latinx Christianities from fields such as history, theology, and sociology and organized by theme. The essays, taken individually and collectively, pay attention to both historical and contemporary aspects of major Christian
denominations and movements. This handbook provides in-depth coverage of specific national groups, denominations, geographies, and theologies, and also attends to themes of gender, sexuality, empire, migration, diaspora, borderlands, and transnationalism. This volume is a go-to source for anyone interested in the role
that religion, specifically Christianity, plays in the lives of U.S. Latinxs.
