The life of an extraordinary man, missionary, Japanese prison camp survivor, professor, husband, and father. The life of Hugo H. Culpepper—Southern Baptist Missionary, prisoner in a Japanese concentration camp during World War II, director of missions at the Baptist Home Mission Board, and professor of missions—this biography also chronicles the development of his thought and his understanding of Christian missions. This is the story of a how a boy from a small town lived far beyond the horizons of his early years, both literally and metaphorically. From the beginning, one is struck by his lifelong effort to find and to follow God in his life. Through his years of experience as a missionary and a professor of missions, Culpepper developed a biblically based theology of missions, and in his later years he explored the challenge of religious pluralism for the Christian faith. R. Alan Culpepper, Hugo Culpepper's son, tells this rich story with a unique blend of narrative, letters, and diary entries. Also included are excerpts of sermons and essays that allow Hugo Culpepper to speak on his own behalf. As such, this book is a biographical theology of a man who not only affected students' lives with his thought and teaching, but changed the world as a missionary.
