In the Philippines, the growth of Evangelical and Pentecostal churches has not resulted in a decrease of the Catholic faithful, but in a Pentecostalization of Philippine Protestant Churches and the Philippine Catholic Church as well. The authors question common perceptions of Charismatic Christians as under-privileged masses and depict the Charismatic success as a genuinely religious phenomenon, which never-theless might have political repercussions.
