Abstract

Edward Cleary, a Catholic priest of the Order of Preachers (Dominicans) and social scientist, first ministered in Latin America in 1958. From 1993 to 2011, he served as professor at the Dominican-sponsored Providence College in Rhode Island, when he retired as emeritus at age 81. When he died November 21, 2011, he was nearing completion of another book on religion in Latin America and planning his next work. Ed was like that. His broad and deep passion for Latin America together with his profound sympathy with the charismatic movement and church renewal in general make him very well-suited to have written the book under review. It did not hurt that some of the Dominican friars from the United States with whom he served in Latin America were pioneers in the Catholic charismatic movement there. While the growth of classic Pentecostalism in Latin America has been much studied, the largest single bloc of pentecostalized worship and expression in Latin America is within Catholicism rather than outside it. Cleary’s work offers a critical entry-point to this under-studied but vitally important aspect of the diffusion of Pentecostalism. His rich documentation, personal profiles, and wise insights offer extraordinary material for countless dissertations.
