Item description for On the Move: A History of the Hispanic Church in the United States by Moises Sandoval & Bishop Ricardo Ramirez...
Overview Fifteen years after its first publication, Moises Sandoval's On the Move remains the essential history of the Hispanic church in the United States. Much of this is a story of marginalization, as Hispanic Catholics struggled to assert their dignity and to claim their own cultural identity in an essentially Anglo church. In recent decades, with the first Hispanic bishops, the Encuentro movement, and the emergence of Hispanic theology, we see a new church emerging from the margins, enriched by a diversity of cultures, standing with the poor, and embracing the full experience of its people. With Hispanics soon to constitute the majority of Catholics in the U.S., this is a story that deserves wide attention.

Remains essential for any collection strong in either Hispanic studies or church history. Mar 4, 2007
ON THE MOVE: A HISTORY OF THE HISPANIC CHURCH IN THE UNITED STATES was published fifteen years ago - today it still remains the foundation title telling of the Hispanic church in this country, so this reissue remains essential for any collection strong in either Hispanic studies or church history. It tells how Hispanic Catholics emerged to claim their own power and identity in the church structure, and traces the rise of Hispanic Christianity in this country as well.
