I just read an interesting, although unsurprising, review of the state of Catholicism in Latin America. If you’re interested in the religious climate in which we work, this article will help you understand better. You can find it at: Latin America is Losing Its Catholic Identity.
Another helpful perspective is that of Leonardo de Chirico, an Italian Reformed Baptist who lives in Rome. He writes a series called “Vatican Files,” which you can access at Reformation21. He has recently been focusing on how Pope Francis may appear friendly to an evangelical perspective, when in fact he continues to firmly hold Catholic positions diametrically opposed to the gospel.
