This book investigates the religious and social background
of members of neopentecostal mega-churches in Lima, Peru.
It examines from a sociological perspective the social
factors of religious mobility of neopentecostals to and
between these churches. The findings address the question
whether religious mobility of neopentecostals serves as a
springboard for upward social mobility. 

Uta Ihrke-Buchroth is a sociologist and theologian. She
