I am grateful for Dave Broucek's kind review of Brazilian Evangelical Missions in the Arab World in the April 2013 issue of Evangelical Missions Quarterly:
Ed Smither’s work represents a mature evangelical description of Latin American missionary efforts. Earlier narratives of missions from south of the border exulted in Luis Bush’s bold declaration, “From a mission field, Latin America has become a mission force.” Smither has no less admiration for the Latin missionary movement, but his description is more “thick” (to use a term from qualitative research) and more nuanced.
(Visit EMQ online to read the read the rest of the review).
Dave serves with South America Mission, a key organization in Latin America for nearly a century. It was my privilege last Fall to sit with some of the SAM field leaders and share what I had learned through writing the book.
