Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the accounts of the founding of the Fraternidad Teológica Latinoamericana (FTL). It discusses the reception history of this group together with its importance in the process of maturation and definition of a Latin American evangelical theology. The history of the FTL starts before its inception, even before CLADE I. Its antecedents go back to informal gatherings of Latin American evangelicals with theological interests and social inquietude. The gestation period for the FTL was not struggle-free. Several problems threatened its healthy formation, problems like exclusion of certain people, leadership tensions, and financial control. For Wagner the wideness of views the FTL showed in Cochabamba was absent in most of the seminaries in the United States and in Latin America.
