About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

As the Jesuits penetrated deeper into the Natives’ cultures and beliefs, a loosening of their Classicist bias began to emerge so that a transformation of their assessments of the Indians began to stir. These rumblings were consistent with the thoughts of the 20th century theologian, Bernard Lonergan who proclaimed that culture is to be conceived empirically and not normatively. These new understandings came at considerable costs to the missionaries who were often at odds with their countrymen, members of their own Society, powerful clerics within their church, and the native communities to whom they had come to serve. Their world was also riven with strife both local and international in their origins.

Deftly constructed at 301 pages, Jesuit Inculturation in the New World: Experiments in Missions of 16th, 17th, and 18th Centuries is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Religious - Historical category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Jesuit Inculturation in the New World meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $21.95.

Additionally, Jesuit Inculturation in the New World can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press wholesale online bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks
