Chapter Summary

This chapter explores some depth Protestant responses to the revolution. It first explores the position of those who supported the Sandinistas, as represented by CEPAD’s leaders, together with a minority of Evangelicals. Then it outlines the Evangelical, mainly Pentecostal, response against the revolution. The chapter also quantifies adherents on both sides in order to establish which represented the majority Protestant position vis-à-vis the Sandinista government. When CEPAD leaders expressed strong support for the revolution, they were simply not speaking on behalf of their members. Therefore, it is vitally important to differentiate between CEPAD as an assembly of churches, and its executive, which invoked the whole organisation to give itself legitimacy.

Keywords: CEPAD; Evangelicals; protestant responses; revolution; Sandinistas
