By 2050 an estimated 100 million Americans will claim Latin origin. Thus, an understanding of Latino/a spirituality is essential to understanding religion in this country today and in the future. This book provides insights into how Latinos and Latinas, including Protestants, Catholics, followers of other religions, and secular practitioners, participate in the pursuit and practice of the spiritual or "holy"-santo.
