Lived Religion in Latin America
An Enchanted Modernity
Gustavo Morello, S.J.
Reviews and Awards
"Privileging the voices of the poor, Morello shows us that there is far more religion in their everyday lives than the 'modern' world might expect, even if it is not necessarily the religion the churches might wish. This brilliant exploration of lived religious practices in three Latin American cities - across both private and public life -- is a must read for those who seek to understand the breadth of contemporary religious expression in the world" -- Nancy T. Ammerman, author of Sacred Stories, Spiritual Tribes: Finding Religion in Everyday Life
"Gustavo Morello's engaging book digs deep into the particularities of everyday, lived religious practices in Latin America and in doing so compellingly illuminates the persistent, embodied appeal of the sacred as a dynamic personal and political resource amid the evolving legacy of modernity and the challenges and possibilities it presents." -- Michele Dillon, author of Postsecular Catholicism: Relevance and Renewal
