Latino Americans and the Popularity of Prosperity Gospel Pentecostalism

This episode explores the surging popularity of Prosperity Gospel Pentecostalism among Latino Americans. Dr. Tony Tian-Ren Lin, author Prosperity Gospel Latinos and Their American Dream, joins us to explain what the Prosperity Gospel entails and why it has been so appealing to Latino Americans, especially to new immigrants. We discuss how the Prosperity Gospel gives people a feeling of control over their lives, particularly in the face of profound structural inequalities. And we explore how Prosperity Gospel Pentecostalism impacts faithful Latino Americans’ political involvement.
