Being Latino in Christ

I'm so glad I found this book! After reading it I wanted to find the author, sit at a Starbucks, and have a three hour conversation with him. So much of what he depicted was a reflection of my own experiences as a Christian Latina. It was brave, insightful, and well written. I have often referred back to it because Mr. Crespo put into words feelings and thoughts that I had but couldn't articulate. I now recommend the book to all my friends who thank me for it. Bravo, Mr. Crespo.Being Latino in Christ: Finding Wholeness in Your Ethnic Identity

Not just for Latinos

"If Christianity is for everyone, then what difference does ethnicity make?" The author shows that ethnicity is not something we need to overcome, but something that needs to be embraced. Rather than arguing a cultural perspective, Crespo speaks gently as a Latino American who stuggled to find his own personal identity and identity in Christ. If you're looking for a thoughtful dialogue on faith and culture from a personal perspective, this is a good place to start.

What the Latino community needs

I absolutely recommend this book to any and every Latino in the US. Orlando Crespo goes into what our history is as Latinos, the oppression that our ancestors have gone through, the struggles we go through with identity being part of two cultures and other issues we face. Using the Scriptures, he takes us through God's plan for us as an ethnic culture and how He uses our ethnic identity to reflect a part of who He is. I also recommend this book to those who are curious about the Hispanic Christian community and those wanting to minister in that area.
