Editorial Reviews


Hinojosa adeptly examines how African American civil rights struggles, relations with Latin Americans, and trends in evangelical religion shaped the faith and activism of U.S. Latino Mennonites. Latino Mennonites is both a superb narrative history and a model for the scholarly analysis of religion within its wider social context.

(Timothy Matovina, University of Notre Dame)

Deftly weaving together stories of everyday life with analysis of economic and political structures, Hinojosa reconstructs the spaces where the identity 'Latino Mennonite' took shape. Moving from South Texas to Chicago to Puerto Rico, from Bible studies in homes to social justice protests in the streets, Hinojosa illustrates the complex manner in which Latinos and blacks were able to claim belonging—and in the process transform—the historically white Mennonite Church.

(Jane Juffer, Cornell University, author of Intimacy Across Borders: Race, Religion, and Migration in the U.S. Midwest)

Latino Mennonites is a pathbreaking study of the hidden history of Latinos in the United States—the role of religion and politics. With masterful historical skills and a nuanced historical perspective, Felipe Hinojosa unearths the history of Latino Mennonites and contributes to the developing historiography of Latino religious studies and to a more inclusive history of American religions.

(Mario T. García, University of California, Santa Barbara, author of Católicos: Resistance and Affirmation in Chicano Catholic History)

This is an important study of a long-term and growing Latino religious community. Latino Mennonites manages coverage of a broad era and nearly national coverage without seeming scattered. A great read.
