El Pueblo Caliente, El Pueblo Profético
Chapter 2 introduces the reader to two small neighborhood Pentecostal churches and their local community in Villa Altagracia, San Cristóbal province. After providing an outline of the socioeconomic context, the author gives a description of the ethnographic methodology used to collect data for the study. Named after the country’s revered patron saint, Villa Altagracia is an archetypal Dominican town: “poor” and “traditional” by the cosmopolitan standards of the capital, it sits at the intersection of the decline of prosperous sugar production, the rise of export manufacturing, and trying economic changes affecting much of Dominican society over the past quarter century.
