Product Overview

Based on intensive fieldwork, Matsuoka vividly depicts the followers of Church of World Messianity, a Japanese new religion in Brazil, which has successfully acquired a strong following among Brazilians, most whom are nonethnic Japanese. This book should be of interest to academics of religion, anthropology, transculturalism, or those focusing on Latin America as the book elucidates the reasons why these nonethnic Japanese Brazilians have accepted Messianity including analysis of fundamental features of the religion.
