José Luis Avendaño en La sombra religiosa americana expone uno de los fenómenos más debatidos de los últimos años en América Latina: el ascenso de visibilidad social y tracción pública de la iglesia evangélica. El crecimiento demográfico, la presencia cada vez mayor en medios y redes sociales y las incursiones en la arena política despiertan todo tipo de reacciones en un continente históricamente católico, aunque actualmente globalizado y en proceso de secularización. Las voces, desde las más esperanzadas hasta las más críticas, a menudo abundan en estereotipos; la pregunta por lo evangélico –sus características, sus luces y sombras, su unidad en medio de una enorme diversidad– sigue en pie.

En esta analítica y minuciosa obra, José Luis Avendaño descifra el misterio detrás de los múltiples rostros de la iglesia evangélica latinoamericana. El foco de análisis es la sombra que ejerce sobre ella la American Religion: esa forma de religiosidad que encarna y glorifica los valores de la American Way of Life. Dos conceptos le sirven como eje para entender el cristianismo: la identidad –aquello que la revelación tiene de único e inmutable– y la relevancia –aquello que evoluciona, en dialogo con la cultura-.

José Luis Avendaño in The American Religious Shadow, exposes one of the most debated phenomena of recent years in Latin America is the rise of social visibility and public traction of the evangelical church. The demographic growth, the increasing presence in the media and social networks, the incursions in the political arena arouse all kinds of reactions in a historically Catholic continent, although currently globalized and in the process of secularization. Voices, from the most hopeful to the most critical, often abound in stereotypes; the question of evangelicalism-its characteristics, its lights and shadows, its unity in the midst of enormous diversity-remains unanswered.

In this analytical and meticulous work, José Luis Avendaño unravels the mystery behind the multiple faces of the Latin American evangelical church. The focus of analysis is the shadow cast over it by American Religion: that form of religiosity that embodies and glorifies the values of the American Way of Life. Two concepts serve as the axis for understanding Christianity: identity -that which revelation is unique and immutable- and relevance -that which evolves, in dialogue with culture-.
