Editorial Reviews


"This is a massive volume and a veritable treasure trove of facts and analyses on African Christianity...the book combines hard statistical data with analyses by critical insiders of African Christianity and the style is informative and very user-friendly...it will become the standard handbook on African Christianity." -- Mika Vähäkangas, Lund University, Mission Studies


"A useful and valuable resource for studying African Christianity. The fact that most of the contributions were written by eminent African scholars reinforces the book's significance and standing." -- Martha Frederiks, Utrecht University, Exchange


"A very usable and comprehensive overview of Christianity in Africa for scholars to keep on their shelves for easy consultation. The volume's approachability, recognized authority of individual chapter authors, and clear language also makes it a needed reference for any university library. Each chapter includes a bibliography, giving students a trail to follow to find more information about the topic they are researching." -- Dianna Bell, University of Cape Town, Journal of Religion in Africa
