Angela Tarango's Choosing the Jesus Way: American Indian Pentecostals and the PDF

By Angela Tarango

Choosing the Jesus Way uncovers the background and spiritual stories of the 1st American Indian converts to Pentecostalism. concentrating on the Assemblies of God denomination, the tale starts off in 1918, while white missionaries fanned out from the South and Midwest to transform local americans within the West and different elements of the rustic. Drawing on new ways to the worldwide heritage of Pentecostalism, Angela Tarango exhibits how switched over indigenous leaders ultimately remodeled a regular Pentecostal theology of missions in ways in which mirrored their very own spiritual struggles and complex their sovereignty in the denomination.

Key to the tale is the Pentecostal "indigenous principle," which inspires missionaries to coach neighborhood management in hopes of making an indigenous church rooted within the tradition of the missionized. In Tarango's research, the indigenous precept itself was once appropriated by way of the 1st iteration of local American Pentecostals, who remodeled it to critique features of the missionary undertaking and to argue for higher spiritual autonomy. extra commonly, Tarango scrutinizes simplistic perspectives of spiritual imperialism and demonstrates how spiritual varieties and practices are frequently jointly motivated within the American experience.
