This chapter deals with new ways of doing politics in the Latin American evangelical religious field (mainly in the neo-Pentecostal sector), explores new social rationalities that go hand in hand with the “political” crisis and invest in the instrumentalization of “politics” by certain religious sectors. Now, the new "political evangelicals" use the defense of a "moral agenda" as a starting point to insert themselves in the political world and begin to prioritize "political pressure groups" as a strategy of public influence. Therefore, it seeks to understand the rationality of these new political strategies of evangelicals and the capacity they may have to influence Latin American “public policies”.
