This study of the cross-cultural transmission of the Christian faith looks at how Christianity became a world faith, the role of Africa in Christian history and the missionary movements of the West. It reaches back to Eusebius of Edessa in the 4th century and down to the contemporary world, from "Old Athens" and "New Jerusalem" to the vast continents of South America, Asia and Africa. On the way it offers fresh understandings of Pentecostalism, African traditional religion, and the ironic ways in which the western missionary movement often accomplished things - both for good and for ill - that its agents never dreamed of.

Industry Reviews

'All three parts are interesting and relevant and make a contribution to knowledge of the topic. They are also written in penetrable English that is straightforward and easy to read.... There is much fascinating information here, and while to the few it may seem commonplace that the church has retreated from a Christendom situation into dominance in the non-western world - to most this vaguely-recognised phenomenon is startlingly new and only semi-known.' Frank Whaling
