Katharine L. Wiegele

About the book: 
Offers an in-depth look at “Brother Mike’s” Catholic “prosperity” movement (or El Shaddai), characterized by its effective use of mass media and its huge, emotion-filled outdoor rallies. Wiegele argues that El Shaddai’s theology directly engages and affirms desires for the material signs of modernity in ways that the mainstream Philippine Catholic Church and Filipino leftist movements do not.
