In recent decades, Africans have come to live in Britain in significant numbers. This has led to a large number of African independent Churches and a higher percentage of Africans in the "historical" churches, like the Church of England, the Roman Catholic Church and the Methodist Church. These Africans have brought with them their own kind of Christianity, which is often nuanced by their African traditional worldview. This book is the first significant study to be published on the nature of the religion of African Christians living in Britain. It uses a wide range of material to show what this group of Christians believe about God, Jesus Christ and Salvation. It identifies what "African Christianity" is and distinguishes it from the kind of Christianity found in the West. It shows how this "African Christianity" is interacting with the social, political, economic and philosophical forces within its new context. It is a book that will be valuable to people who have interest in the variety of expressions of Christianity around the world or in how religious faith interacts with its context.
