Becoming Jewish, Believing in Jesus. Judaising Evangelicals in Brazil
22 June 2021 6.00pm-7.30pm:
Stipendiary Fellow of the Centre for Latin America and Caribbean Studies, Manoela Carpenedo warmly invites you to the launch of her book: Becoming Jewish, Believing in Jesus published by Oxford University Press (NY) in April 2021.
Charismatic Evangelical communities adopting Jewish tenets, symbols, rituals, and even Zionist activism are growing across the globe. Becoming Jewish, Believing in Jesus is the first in-depth ethnography to investigate this religious tendency in Latin America. Drawing upon extensive fieldwork and socio-cultural analysis of an austere ‘Judaising Evangelical’ community in Brazil, the book explores the surprising identification with Jews and Judaism by people with exclusively Charismatic Evangelical backgrounds.
