Item Description...
The late Bengt Sundkler, missionary, bishop, and academic, pioneered the study of independent churches in Africa. In this magisterial work, he reviews the entire history of the development of Christianity in all regions of the continent. In contrast to the conventional focus on the missionary enterprise, Professor Sundkler places the African converts at the centre of the study. African Christians, typically drawn from the margins of society, reinterpreted the Christian message, proselytised, governed local congregations, and organised independent churches. Emphasising African initiatives in the process of Christianisation, he argues that its development was shaped by African kings and courts, the history of labour migration, and local experiences of colonisation. This long-awaited book will become the standard reference on African Christian churches.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A master's overview  Jul 28, 2000
Sundkler was an Africanist scholar and a working missionary. This is his last book, completed at his death by his research assistant. It covers the entire rich history of Christianity in Africa, with emphasis on the 19th and 20th centuries. With such a magisterial attempt to cover a huge number of eras and regions, it is bound to be less than perfect, yet what is amazing is how close it gets. Sundkler brings his scholarly study of the independent churches into the context of the entire Christian development from the time of Christ. Nothing in print matches this book, and it will be awhile before another scholar of this ability appears to attempt it.
