Item Description...
In this sweeping history, Tibebe Eshete presents a new view of Ethiopian Christianity. Synthesizing existing scholarship with original interviews and archival research, he demonstrates that the vernacular nature of the Ethiopian church played a critical role in the development of a state church. He also traces the effects of the political on the religious: the growth of other "counter-cultural" movements in 1960s Ethiopia, such as renewal movements, youth discontentment, and the Marxist regime (under which the church still flourished). This strikingly authentic work refutes the thesis that evangelicalism was imported. Instead, Eshete shows, it was a genuine indigenous response to cultural pressures.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A core and strongly recommended addition to academic library Christian history reference collections  Jul 17, 2009
Ethiopia is one of the poorest countries on the African continent. Over the past several decades it has been ravaged by wars, famines, and epidemic disease. It has also been home to the Ethiopian Christian church whose members have been active participants in both the events of the day and in trying to expand their communities of faith even in the face of considerable hardships. This evangelical movement is not something imported from abroad, but has arisen from the ranks of the native Ethiopians themselves. That is the fundamental message of Tibebe Eshete's 480-page history and commentary "The Evangelical Movement In Ethiopia: Resistance And Resilience". Providing an informed and informative historical overview, "The Evangelical Movement In Ethiopia" begins with the first emergence of the Ethiopian Orthodox church from its earliest movement down to the present day. A native Ethiopian, Eshete then covers the first three centuries of the Evangelical Church including the war years, the restoration, and the renewed missionary work. The next major section is dedicated to the Pentecostal Church. The final major section covers the Ethiopian revolution including early church-state relations under Communist rule, responses of the southern evangelical church to persecution, the 'underground' Christian movement within Ethiopian society, and more. A seminal work of outstanding scholarship, "The Evangelical Movement In Ethiopia" is a core and strongly recommended addition to academic library Christian history reference collections in general, and African Christian Studies supplemental reading lists in particular.
