Evangelicals in Mexico

Their Hymnody and Its Theology


Dinorah Mendez

Hymns as a potential tool of theological contextualisation have never been fully explored. This study looks at this function of hymnody in relation to Mexican culture. A sample of hymnody used by evangelicals of different traditions was selected to examine its theology and to compare which kind of hymns or songs were more reliable and appropriate to communicate the evangelical faith in the Mexican context.
