Religious Mobility and Social Aspirations of Neopentecostals in Lima, Peru

By Uta Ihrke-Buchroth

This book investigates the religious and social background of members of neo-pentecostal mega-churches in Lima, Peru. From a sociological perspective, it examines the social factors of religious mobility of neo-pentecostals to and between these churches. The book's findings address the question of whether religious mobility of neo-pentecostals serves as a springboard for upward social mobility.
