Product Description

Andrew F. Walls’s first collection of essays, The Missionary Movement in Christian History, was named by Christianity To­day in their list of the top 100 most influential books of the twentieth century. In this third collection, Walls carries forward his decades-long project, upending staid interpretations of Christian history by examining the role of mission and cross-cultural transmission of the Gospel in the formation of World Christianity.

In essays marked by profound learning and his characteristic wit, Walls covers themes ranging from the transmission of Christian faith, to Africa in Christian thought and history, along with reflections on a broad range of mission figures, and a personal reflection on “missiology as a vocation.”

Andrew F. Walls is a former missionary to Sierra Leone and Honorary Professor in the University of Edinburgh; Professor of the History of Mission, Liverpool Hope University; and Emeritus Professor, Akrofi-Christaller Institute, Akropong, Ghana. His books include The Missionary Movement in Christian History, The Cross-Cultural Process in Christian History, and (with Cathy Ross), Mission in the 21st Century (all Orbis Books).
