Product Description

In the two centuries before the first world war the colonialist framework for missions was predominant for western missionaries. As this theory for foreign missions has come under modern scrutiny and, largely, been found wanting, many have taken up the task of critiquing this pivotal time in the history of the spread of Christianity. In Converting Colonialism, editor Dana Robert has assembled a collection of cogent essays written by credentialed experts specializing in foreign missions from the colonial period. The impact that this type of missiology had in India, Africa, China, and even in the Islamic world is discussed at length, and a comprehensive bibliography (hundreds of books and articles, both modern and from the period in question are listed) is provided for those with a deeper interest in the subject.

Publisher's Description

In this volume, leading historians of Christianity in the non-Western world examine the relationship between missionaries and nineteenth-century European colonialism, and between indigenous converts and the colonial contexts in which they lived. Forced to operate within a political framework of European expansionism that lay outside their power to control, missionaries and early converts variously attempted to co-opt certain aspects of colonialism and to change what seemed prejudicial to gospel values.

These contributors are the leading historians in their fields, and the concrete historical situations that they explore show the real complexity of missionary efforts to "convert" colonialism.
