Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter of the book, which provides a story of an important process of development and maturation for evangelicals in Latin America during a critical decade. The story is told from the point of view of the people who were actively involved in the process either as main characters or as critics. The book is about a group of Latin American evangelical theologians who were active in theological production in Latin America during the 1970s. The central thesis is that the evangelical theological production in Hispanic Latin America experienced a decisive maturing process in defining its identity, methodology, and main lines of action in the decade between 1969 and 1979. "Maturity and definition" means the growing awareness and conscientization to solve the vacuum of an autochthonous theological reflection by conservative Latin American evangelicals.

Keywords: Latin American evangelicals; theological reflection
