Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter provides an overview of the book Revolution, Revival, and Religious Conflict in Sandinista Nicaragua and its chapters. The book is divided into three parts. The first part provides essential background to Protestant-Sandinista relations. The second part explores the dynamics of church-state relations from a Protestant perspective. The third part explores the nature and dynamics of church-state relations from the Sandinista perspective. The appendices include a short biographical sketch of the main characters appearing in the book, together with several maps of Nicaragua. This is essentially an historical study concerned with how both sides perceived each other. The book also refers several times to interviews given by Ministry of the Interior (MINT) defectors Alvaro José Baldizón Aviles and Miguel Bolaños Hunter, who detailed Sandinista human rights abuses.

Keywords: church-state relations; human rights abuses; Protestant-Sandinista relations; religious conflict; Sandinista Nicaragua
