ORO, Ari Pedro. "Reciben lo que veniran a buscar": nação e poder num encontro evangélico internacional, em Buenos Aires. Relig. soc. [online]. 2010, vol.30, n.1, pp.32-52. ISSN 0100-8587. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-85872010000100003.
This text analyzes two salient features, brought out by ethnographic observations, of an international evangelical meeting that occurred in Buenos Aires (September 22 _ 24, 2008) known as the 2008 Breakthrough. We refer, first, to the articulation between global and national elements the former glorified especially by the organizer and principal protagonists of the event, and the latter valued especially by the faithful. The second feature refers to the quest for power and knowledge as mobilizing elements for pastors and adepts from different nations to participate in the event.
