Chapter Summary

This chapter explores the reception history of the two congresses and their role in the development of an autochthonous evangelical theological production in Hispanic Latin America in the 1970s. For most North Americans there were only two sides, the "liberals" and the "evangelicals." They viewed both camps as represented in 1969 in the two evangelical congresses held in that year, CELA III and CLADE I. In an indirect way CELA III influenced CLADE I. CLADE's committee became even more cautious about whom to invite, either as speakers or participants, and whom not to invite. CLADE I was a "Made in America" congress on Latin American soil that happened to be attended mostly by Latin Americans. There were two almost opposite views or perceptions of CLADE I. North Americans saw in it "the" answer for the evangelism of Latin America.

Keywords: CELA III; CLADE I; evangelical congresses; Latin America; liberals; North America
