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)
Felipe Hinojosa provides in this work a carefully crafted and rendered history of Latino Mennonites from the 1930s to the 1980s that builds on Latino studies and scholarship and also offers a fresh approach to Latino religious studies... Hinojosa's focus on interethnic co-operation as well as internal tensions is a turning point for Latino religious studies because it adds a vital comparative angle... Latino Mennonites is a wonderful story told, a model of engaged, revisionist Latino religious studies that should be read and assigned in upper-undergraduate-level and graduate-level classes as a model for the future of Latino religious studies scholarship.(Kristy Nabhan-Warren Journal of American History)
He has not only contributed to the scholarly understanding of the way ethnic identity intersects with faith and politics, but has done so by telling the previously unknown story of Latino Mennonites in the United States(Curtis W. Book Brethren in Christ History and Life)
[ Latino Mennonites] can help us understand a bit better not just important streams within American evangelicalism but some of Iowa's present and future religious landscape as well.(The Annals of Iowa)
A detailed and fascinating history of the Mexican and Puerto Rican experience in the Mennonite Church... Latino Mennonites documents the unique way in which Latino Mennonites straddle the border of evangelicalism and Anabaptism, and it also illustrates the intersection of civil rights, faith, and evangelical culture... Hinojosa has an engaging style, and the depth of the historical context he provides allows the personalities o his informants to shine through.(Sociology of Religion)
