Product Description

What happens when an American missionary priest leaves behind all his old familiar structures to enter the world of the nomadic Masai people of Tanzania? That is the subject of Vincent J. Donovan's beloved classic, Christianity Rediscovered. Donovan learned what the gospel looked like, shorn of its Western packaging. In the process he discovered the creativity and humanity of the Masai people. But he also "rediscovered" the meaning of the gospel in all its radical power - a message just as relevant and urgent for Western Christians today.

This twenty-fifth anniversary edition of Donovan's "epistle from the Masai" includes essays by Lamin Sanneh and Eugene Hillman, locating the Masai people and Donovan's story in a broader historical and religious context. A moving personal reflection by Donovan's sister reveals the heart of the man himself.
