(p.141) Chapter 5 The Texture of Transnational Apostolicism
Migrating Faith

Daniel Ramírez

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter examines the movement's periodical record, especially the Iglesia Apostólica's Exegeta magazine, in order to texturize our understanding of subaltern religious life during the time period of the Bracero program (1942–1964). This optic, however, foregoes the usual data for the study of Pentecostalism—healing, conversion, and tongues speaking—in favor of reports that reflect taken-for-granted contexts of migration and transnational life. This perspective places in sharper relief practices of fellowship, hospitality, healing, evangelism, and bereavement that spanned the border and reached deeply into both countries and beyond, as well as the centrifugal pressures (e.g., strongman caudillismo) that stymied them. The periodical and hymnodic record also reveals a pattern of Pentecostal pugilism in the face of residual cristero-inspired intolerance and in defense of the tentative turf previously carved out by evangélicos, liberals, and Masons. Finally, the chapter flips over Mainline and Catholic critiques of Pentecostal methods, in order to test the argument for Pentecostal success.
