Title: Protestantism and Repression - a Brazilian Case Study
Description: London, SCM Press. 1979, First Edition. (ISBN: 0334022789). Soft Cover, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. A near Fine clean, tight and unmarked copy. xxxiii + 215 pages. Over the last 25 years incredible changes have taken place in the Presbyterian Church of Brazil, and at the beginning of the 1960's it was acclaimed as the outstanding success story of Protestantism in Latin America, with its vitality and prospects for further growth. Now, after long domination by a small group of reactionary leaders, the church is decimated and the word Presbyterian has connotations of religious fanaticism and repression. Professor Alves explains how this happened, and it is a sobering story, made more grim by the thought that, as an increasing tide of conservatism sweeps the churches of North America and indeed of Europe, the same thing could happen there. NOT EX LIB R13. Very Good/No Jacket.
