Another Gem from Escobar  Jan 10, 2007
Peruvian theologian and missiologist Samuel Escobar is a powerful and prolific writer in both Spanish and English. He has been a pioneer of a new wave of Latin American theological writers of substance and a leading educator in the Americas and Europe. This particular work is a thoughtful analysis Latin America's transition from being a mission field to becoming a sender of missionaries to other languages and cultures.

The first part of the book is a wonderful, concise summary of the history of Christianity in Latin America. Many evangelical readers might be surprised at the honest, balanced and charitable treatment Escobar gives to Roman Catholic missionaries who arrived centuries before the Protestants. This is a long-overdue breath of fresh air. Some of the Roman Catholic missionaries were agents of colonial excess and/or the same ecclesiastical corruption that led to the Reformation. Others, though, were sincere followers of Christ within the limits of their tradition.

Escobar is grateful for his own link to the Protestant missionaries who arrived in Latin American in the latter part of the nineteenth century, and speaks with particular affection of the influential John Mackay, author of "The Other Spanish Christ." Following the Second World War, a new generation of evangelical faith missionaries arrived in great numbers. While appreciative of their zeal and sincerity, Escobar is brutally honest in assessing some of the damage done by missionaries who failed to take into account this historical perspective and the theological integrity of their predecessors. This gave rise to a Latin American evangelical Christianity that has struggled with superficiality, dependency, a fortress mentality and denominational divisiveness.

Despite the challenges of the last half of the twentieth century, Latin American Christianity has flourished numerically and is rapidly becoming a major player in global missions. This is Escobar's focus in the final part of the book. Escobar's sense of history, his considerable theological and missiological credentials and his long life of rich experience qualify him to provide the reader with fascinating insight, wise counsel and thought-provoking challenges. This is an essential book for anyone involved in ministry to or among Latin Americans.
