About this title:

Synopsis: This book explores how a group of evangelical Christians aided the Guatemalan army's counterinsurgency campaign - logistically, financially, and theologically - in the highlands of Guatemala in 1982 and 1983. It explains how the military government of General José Efraín Ríos Montt turned to evangelical Christianity to buttress anti- communist and neoliberal development programs in one particular highland area, the Ixil Region. The book also sheds light on why U.S and Guatemalan evangelical missionaries willfully supported a right- wing dictatorship, embracing their role as "spiritual soldiers" and legitimizing the Guatemalan army through theological teachings and relief work.

About the Author: Blake C. Scott is a doctoral student at the University of Texas at Austin, studying Latin American and Caribbean History. He is originally from Winter Park, Florida.
