Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a provisional synthesis of some of the things that the author have learned from the Newark research in 1999–2000 about the dynamics characterizing the encounter between Latin American immigrants and the Pentecostal movement in the United States. Seven years later, these now seem a bit clearer, broader and deeper, thanks to the light thrown by convergent studies carried on by many scholars in other places. May the writing of these thoughts, and the reading by other people equally interested in the topic, serve at least the purpose of eliciting critiques revealing further biases underlying our observations, thus contributing to a richer appreciation of the Pentecostal phenomenon both in Latin America and among United States (U.S.) Hispanics. A decisive mark of Pentecostalism in the history of Latin American Christianity lies indeed in its daily demonstration that ‘anybody’ can do, be, build and lead church.

Keywords: Christianity; Globalized Pentecostalism; Latin America; Newark; United States (U.S) Hispanics
