Description:

In the context of Latin America, the theology of liberation is both dominant and world renowned. However, this context and the pursuit of theological relevance belong also to other voices. Orlando E. Costas, Samuel Escobar, J. Andrew Kirk, Emilio A. Nunez, and C. René Padilla are thinkers who have sought to bring an evangelical understanding of liberation to the people of Latin America. Despite their influence on national and international theology and despite their transformative contribution to the praxis of churches ministering in contexts of poverty, their thought has not been systematized to date. This work deals with this lacuna, presenting the vitality of Latin American evangelical theology, which seeks to be biblical, relevant, and missiologically effective, thus offering a liberation that is holistic and grounded in the kingdom of God.
