This issue of the Journal of Latin American Theology presents a selection of papers from the July 2017 conference, "Where is Protestantism in Latin America Headed? A Future-Oriented, Multidisciplinary Vision 500 Years after the Reformation." This event was cosponsored by IAPCHE, the FTL, and CETI in Lima, Peru in commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. It was a look back, with gratitude to God, for positive contributions in Latin America that can be traced to the Reformation. It was also a sobering recognition of the shortcomings of that renewal movement. Even more importantly, the scholars and practitioners involved proposed faithful steps for Protestant churches in Latin America to take in the foreseeable future. Some forty individuals gathered to explore many angles of the Reformation's legacy in Latin America, including history, human rights, social justice, aesthetics and literature, church education, ecology and economic sustainability, and communication. The articles included here address Protestantism and Christian higher education, epistemology, autochthonous identity, Anabaptism, and development and decolonialism.
