A detailed look into the deep and rich history of Christianity in Latin America
Spanning more than 500 years, this illustrated book covers the rich history of Christianity in Latin America.

Each section includes sources that look at the way Christianity manifested and continues to manifest itself in the life of Latin American society, including its women, its enslaved and indigenous populations, and the modern-day marginalized sectors.
Nuestra Fe describes and clarifies the muliplicity of expressions that have evolved under Latin American Christianity. It also provides a collection of many primary resources including traditional written documents, photographs of architectural features, litanies, poetry, and official correspondence.
