Editorial Reviews

Review

"In his new book Being Latino in Christ, Orlando Crespo writes with clarity and sensitivity as he addresses the daunting task of defining what it means to be a second-generation Latino in the U.S. and, more important, a Latino who has chosen the road less traveled of following Christ by embracing and even celebrating the heritage and culture he has been blessed with by our Creator. The book serves as guide for those of us who desire to integrate all of who we are with our faith in Christ." (Rudy Hernandez, Board of Trustees, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA)

"This is an exceptional work because it provides emotional and spiritual holism to second-generation Latinos who struggle with identity. There are also many helps for other second-generation ethnic groups." (Dr. Manuel Ortiz, Professor of Mission and Urban Ministry Emeritus, Westminster Theological Seminary)

About the Author

Crespo is national director of InterVarsity Latino Fellowship (LAFE). He has worked with InterVarsity since 1987, first as a campus staff member at Hunter College and City College in New York City, New York, and then as an area director for a group of colleges in New York City. He was one of the founders of New Life in the Bronx Church, and he still serves there as an associate pastor. He is currently working on a graduate degree in theology.

I absolutely recommend this book to any and every Latino in the US. Orlando Crespo goes into what our history is as Latinos, the oppression that our ancestors have gone through, the struggles we go through with identity being part of two cultures and other issues we face. Using the Scriptures, he takes us through God's plan for us as an ethnic culture and how He uses our ethnic identity to reflect a part of who He is. I also recommend this book to those who are curious about the Hispanic Christian community and those wanting to minister in that area.

"If Christianity is for everyone, then what difference does ethnicity make?" The author shows that ethnicity is not something we need to overcome, but something that needs to be embraced.

Rather than arguing a cultural perspective, Crespo speaks gently as a Latino American who stuggled to find his own personal identity and identity in Christ.

If you're looking for a thoughtful dialogue on faith and culture from a personal perspective, this is a good place to start.

I'm so glad I found this book! After reading it I wanted to find the author, sit at a Starbucks, and have a three hour conversation with him. So much of what he depicted was a reflection of my own experiences as a Christian Latina. It was brave, insightful, and well written. I have often referred back to it because Mr. Crespo put into words feelings and thoughts that I had but couldn't articulate. I now recommend the book to all my friends who thank me for it. Bravo, Mr. Crespo.Being Latino in Christ: Finding Wholeness in Your Ethnic Identity
