Covering five centuries--from the rise of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church in the 15th century and the early Portuguese missionaries right through to the Church and its key role in Africa today--this major new volume is the first complete history of the Christian Church in Africa. Written by a leading authority on Church history who has spent many years in Africa, it looks at all aspects of Christianity in Africa, including its relationship to traditional values and customs, politics, and the comparable rise of Islam in Africa during the period.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Best of its kind  Apr 9, 2007
Hastings book on the Church in Africa 1450-1950 is the best history of the church in Africa to be written so far. He (attempts to) approach the subject through the view point of African Christians rather than from the viewpoint of the missionaries. Sundkler, Sanneh and others also takes this approach. However, Hastings approaches it in a more critical manner, subjecting African response and Western missions to the same critical eye.

One of the conclusions that I've drawn from it is that the most appreciated and remember missionaries have been those who identified with the hopes, aspirations and culture of the people among who they worked. This was often rare, but when it happened it was a wonderful example of the true meaning of the Gospel of Jesus.

The one weakness of the book is that Hastings stops in 1950, leaving the modern, and most exciting, period of African church history out. He'd previously written a smaller book, A History of African Christianity, 1950-1975. However, this earlier book does not meet the same standard of excellence as the one I'm reviewing. He would have done well to update and revise the earlier book to the same standards and included it despite the additional length.

While long, and not a lazy summer's day read, this book should be required reading of anyone interested in Christian missions, whether a theoretician or a practitioner.
