In 1961 he joined the faculty of the Evangelical Seminary of Puerto Rico, teaching historical theology, and in 1969 he moved to Atlanta in order to teach at Candler School of Theology (Emory University).

Gonzalez has published more than 80 books, hundreds of articles, and served twenty years as editor for the journal Apuntes. Several of his books are used as textbooks in seminaries and colleges and are translated into Portuguese, Korean, Chinese, German, Japanese, and Russian. He founded the Asociacion para la Educacion Teologica Hispana and the Hispanic Summer Program, which is sponsored by 38 seminaries and universities.
