This book aims to impress upon those with a Western consciousness that Latin America and its major Catholic Renewal movement, the Charismatics, have grown dramatically in numbers and influence, changing to some unknown extent the face of Christianity there. The movement also has implications for the United States and Canada since migrants from Latin America have come in an ever increasing stream to those countries. The book aims to analyse whether a strong dichotomy exists between Charismaticism, portrayed by many as inward looking and deeply conservative, and liberationism, believed to be the embodiment of social justice and human rights. Within Latin America, Catholic Charismatics dwarfed Protestant Pentecostals, being more than twice their numbers. But Catholic Charismatics in Latin America received far less attention than Protestant Pentecostals for some reason.
