Product Description

Formerly a missionary to Sierra Leone, and Professor Emeritus of the Study of Christianity in the non-Western World at the University of Edinburgh, Andrew F. Walls is arguably, the foremost intellectual authority on Christian Missions today. In , Walls brings together lectures and articles, many for the first time, and makes them available to scholars, students, and laity interested in World Missions. While examining many of the most pressing issues in missions today such as, indigenous forms of Christianity, colonialism in Modern Africa, Walls also reveal the paradoxes of the Christian movement as a whole in discussing just how different specific form s of Christianity are from one another. Winner of the 1997 Christianity Today Book Award this book is a definitive work on the way Christianity has spread around the world, the forms it has taken, and the challenges that lie ahead. Missionary Movement in Christian History: Studies in the Transmission of Faith is an excellent place to begin Missiological study, or to augment already existing research.
