Samuel Escobar / Edited by Mark Greenwood
2022 | 227pp | ISBN: 978-1-914454-36-3
Over the course of a distinguished career spanning over six decades, mission theologian Samuel Escobar has published numerous books and hundreds of papers and articles. In conversation with Samuel we have chosen and organised the writings in this anthology to bring together a small but representative sample of his thinking, as well as introducing some previously unpublished materials. Some chapters have been significantly updated by the author, or by the editors, or by both.
Samuel Escobar is one of the most thoughtful, stimulating, and influential missiologists in the contemporary world. He has made outstanding contributions within the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES), the Lausanne Movement, and in theological institutions in three continents. His voice is rooted in Scripture, shaped in Latin America, and stimulated and sharpened by engagement in the student world. This anthology introduces us to some of his most significant contributions in the fields of culture and mission, mission in Latin America, theological and missiological education and integral mission. It is an indispensable companion for anyone interested in these major areas of reflection and praxis.
Lindsay Brown General Secretary, IFES, 1991-2007 International Director, the Lausanne Movement, 2008-2016
Mission and education, theology and social concern, praxis and friendship, all are inextricably woven together in the life, ministry and writing of Samuel Escobar. This anthology is, undoubtedly, a generous gift to communities of Jesus-followers the world round!
