We celebrate the life and work of Prof. Otto Maduro

I “met” Prof. Otto Maduro in seminary in São Paul, Brazil, when I was studying theology. “Mapas para a Festa” filled my eyes and my heart. Many years later, I met him in US and he spoke in very good Portuguese with me. His joy and wisdom and commitment to the least of these will stay with us forever. I shall honor his legacy with my own teaching and commitments.

I lift up my hands and heart in deep gratitude for his life, teaching and ministry.

Honoring Otto Maduro


Dr. Otto Maduro, Professor of World Christianity, retired after teaching at Drew Theological School since 1992. He was a Latino philosopher and sociologist of religion whose brilliance and passion have indelibly touched so many of us in the academy and the church from all around the globe, particularly in the Americas.
