From Power to Communion

Toward a New Way of Being Church Based on the Latin American Experience

Robert S. Pelton, C.S.C.

“Starting with stories of how North Americans have been impacted by dynamic church life south of the border, Pelton interweaves a mini-history of creative developments in Latin American church life and includes practical proposals for achieving such developments in our own churches. His overall perspective is an especially helpful one: not asking ‘What can we teach Latin American Christians?’ but rather ‘What can Latin American Christians teach us?’ "—Robert McAfee Brown, author of Gustavo Gutierrez: An Introduction to Liberation Theology
