Product Description

This book examines the origins and development of Christianity in Africa from the early story of Egyptian Christianity to the spectacular growth, vitality, and diversity of the churches in Africa today. Dr. Isichei opens her study with Christianity in Antiquity and shows how Egypt and North Africa produced some of the most influential intellects of the time. She then discusses the churches founded in the wake of early contacts with Europe from the late fifteenth century on, and the unbroken Christian witness of Coptic Egypt and Ethiopia. Isichei also examines the different types of Christianity in modern Africa and shows how social factors have influenced its development and expression.

With the explosive growth of Christianity now taking place in Africa and the increasingly recognized significance of African Christianity, this book fills the void in scholarly works on Africa's Christian past.
