9789042028722: Indigenous Apostles: Maya Catholic Catechists Working the Word in Highland Chiapas. (Studies in World Christianity and Interreligious Relations)

Indigenous Apostles tells the story of conversion to Catholicism and birth of new ecclesial community with the arrival of Vatican II mission in Santa Maria Magdalenas, a Tzotzil-speaking village in Mexico's Maya highlands. In the state of Chiapas, the nation's erratic advance into the global market beginning in the 1970s drove landless young Magdaleneros to search for alternatives to peasant peonage. A few became catechists in the Diocese of San Cristóbal de Las Casas. Cognitive entailments of newly-acquired biblical literacy warranted the subsequent critique of local Tzotzil tradition - costumbre - through which they reclaimed their ancestral land. This ethnographic account of their dialectical passage from the way of the ancestors to communion with the world Catholic Church demonstrates local constraints on liberation mission strategy and the power of indigenous agency in their own evangelization. It also points to the salience of place and everyday productive practice for native construction of local theology in the context of the new globalization. The author's considerable gift as a writer and admirable empathy with the subject and the different (and opposing) actors are two notable qualities that make "Indigenous Apostles" a compelling read. Revealing both the inner workings of Maya society and the research process of a superb mind, this book deserves the widest possible readership. Jean Meyer, Centre for Research and Teaching in Social Sciences, Mexico City.
