520 8  Nearly five centuries after the first wave of Catholic 
       missionaries arrived in the New World to spread their 
       Christian message, contemporary religious workers in the 
       Bolivian highlands have begun to encourage Aymara Indians 
       to return to traditional ritual practices. All but 
       eradicated after hundreds of years of missionization, the 
       "old ways" are now viewed as local cultural expressions of
       Christian values. In order to become more Christian, the 
       Aymara must now become more Indian. This groundbreaking 
       study of the contemporary encounter between Catholic 
       missionaries and Aymara Indians is the first ethnography 
       to focus both on the evangelizers and the evangelized. 
       Andrew Orta explores the pastoral shift away from 
       liberation theology that dominated Latin American 
       missionization up until the mid-1980s to the recent 
       "theology of inculturation," which upholds the beliefs and
       practices of a supposedly pristine Aymara culture as 
       indigenous expressions of a more universal Christianity. 
       Addressing essential questions in cultural anthropology, 
       religious studies, postcolonial studies, and globalization
       studies, Catechizing Culture is a sophisticated 
       documentation of the widespread shift from the politics of
       class to the politics of ethnicity and multiculturalism.
