Unbiased history of Baptist missions in Latin America Feb 20, 2009
Justice C. Anderson has published a great historic work of Baptist mission programs (primarily, SBC) in Latin America. I found the 600+ page work to be very informative and (from my limited, personal experience of the work of Baptists in Brazil) to be highly accurate and insightful of the polity associated with the SBC FMB (now IMB) and Brazilian Baptists. I discovered answers to several questions that had crossed my mind concerning certain aspects of the mission work in Brazil and the mandatory changes instituted by the IMB which were responsible for some of the most dedicated and productive missionaries to resign from the IMB. Based on these insights, I assume that the remainder of the countries covered by the author is treated similarly.
The work product appears to be exhaustive with respect to the universal coverage of Latin American countries and provides the reader will clear understandings of what has been accomplished, where it was accomplished and who was involved.
Having recently read the autobiography of Solomon Ginsburg (Baptist missionary in Brazil in late 1800's) I had become interested in a more comprehensive history of the work of Baptists in this country - and Dr. Anderson provided that in his book.
This book will be greatly appreciated by the average Baptist in the "pew" who is interested in learning of Baptists in Latin America. It is easy to read but, at the same time, "absorbing" in documenting the commitment of those who heard the voice of the Lord and responded by serving in this area of the world.
