Product Description

"Amazingly, given the scale of the task, Frykenberg succeeds wonderfully, with a book that is richly informative on countless aspects of Indian history quite apart from its contributions to the study of Christianity. Throughout the book, he makes effective use of individual biographies to illuminate wider trends,"---Christian Century. 600 pages, softcover. Oxford University.

Publisher's Description

Robert Frykenberg's insightful study explores and enhances historical understandings of Christian communities, cultures, and institutions within the Indian world from their beginnings down to the present. As one out of several manifestations of a newly emerging World Christianity, in which Christians of a Post-Christian West are a minority, it has focused upon those trans-cultural interactions within Hindu and Muslim environments which have made Christians in this part of the world distinctive. It seeks to uncover various complexities in the proliferation of Christianity in its many forms and to examine processes by which Christian elements intermingled with indigenous cultures and which resulted in multiple identities, and also left imprints upon various cultures of India.

Thomas Christians believe that the Apostle Thomas came to India in 52 A.D./C.E., and that he left seven congregations to carry on the Mission of bringing the Gospel to India. In our day the impulse of this Mission is more alive than ever. Catholics, in three hierarchies, have become most numerous; and various Evangelicals/Protestant communities constitute the third great tradition. With the rise of Pentecostalism, a fourth great wave of Christian expansion in India has occurred. Starting with movements that began a century ago, there are now ten to fifteen times more missionaries than ever before, virtually all of them Indian. Needless to say, Christianity in India is profoundly Indian and Frykenberg provides a fascinating guide to its unique history and practice.

Editorial Reviews


"Frykenberg succeeds wonderfully, with a book that is richly informative on countless aspects of Indian history quite apart from its contributions to Christianity." --Christian Century


"Writing a history of Christianity in India in a single volume, even a volume as large as this one, is a daunting task...This book faces those challenges head-on with considerable success. ...This is the best single-volume history of Christianity in India written so far.--International Bulletin of Missionary Research


"The breadth of [Frykenberg's] work is astounding." --Religious Studies Review


"[T]his monumental undertaking further brings to public view how ancient, large, variegated, and vibrant a tradition is Christianity in India today." --Church History
