    What happens when the spiritual powers of a pagan culture come up against the power of God? Michael Fape writes with an extensive knowledge of the African context of tribal societies steeped in generations of witch doctors, shamans and animist superstition. The battles that ensue are fascinating and allow us to find new insights into the way God works through the spiritual realm. This book will open your eyes to what is going on in the spiritual realm--and give you confidence of God's provision for us when we come up against anti-Christian powers.

    Theological and mission worlds have long known the need to radically reinterpret christology for cultural realms not formed by Israelite and Western religious and cultural traditions. In Faces of Jesus in Africa, Robert Schreiter has compiled essays by ten creative French and English speaking African theologians, thinkers who are moving beyond prescribing what should be done to actually doing it.

    Persecution in the News

    India Christians
    Forced to Flee


    In India's West Bengal state, local Christians and missionaries faced death threats for their faith, according to Mission News Network. Fourteen members of a Gospel for Asia church were severely beaten and forced to leave their homes on July 10 [2008], after being accused of forcing conversions and bringing an illness on the village. The mob threatened to kill the believers if they remained in the village. Village leader Negesh Rai brought the matter to the attention of local police, which led to calls for his resignation by protesting villagers. On July 16, the believers were removed to a different area for safety.
