About Dr. Núñez

June 5, 1923 – January 14, 2015

On January 14, 2015, at the age of 91, Dr. Emilio Antonio Núñez went home to be with the Lord he served.  He was born June 5, 1923, to Julian Núñez Martinez and Dolores Castenada de Núñez, in San Miguel, El Salvador.

Dr. Núñez graduated with honors from Southern Methodist University (B.A.) and Dallas Theological Seminary (Th.M. and Th. D.).  He completed postdoctoral studies and research at the University of Barcelona, and received several honorary degrees. When the Central American Theological Seminary opened its doors in 1966, he became its first rector. A member of CAM from June 1969 until June 1988, he remained a friend and advocate of the Mission until his death.

Dr. Núñez was widely regarded as one of the foremost biblical scholars in Latin America. He participated in the founding of the Latin American Theological Fraternity and served on the boards of several Christian organizations. But perhaps his greatest contribution was the impact he had on multiple generations of students. His teaching ministry spanned 65 years. In addition, Dr. Núñez was a visiting professor at schools around the globe.

He often maintained an exhausting schedule of speaking, travel, teaching, writing, consulting and correspondence. He was a regularly sought speaker at international conferences. He served on the Lausanne Continuation Committee, was an officer for the International Council for Evangelical Theological Education (ICETE), and was a member of The Theological Commission of the World Evangelical Fellowship.

Dr. Núñez was an internationally respected author who contributed to various scholarly journals and periodicals in North and South America, and wrote some 20 books, including Crisis and Hope in Latin America: An Evangelical Perspective, with William D. Taylor. His book, Liberation Theology remains Dr. Núñez’s monumental piece.

He was preceded in death by his first wife Sara and his second wife Esther.  He is survived by his daughters Sara Amelia, Martha, and Blanca, by his son Emilio Antonio, Jr., and their families.
