An African missionary who has served in several Western countries addresses the reality of the need for and the growing presence of African-born missionaries in the West. Kwiyani shows that historically African Christianity has held a missionary in impulse since the days of the early Church, one that continued throughout history in many contexts (including the United States). In our contemporary era, African missionaries witness to the blessed reflex, the notion that the continued evangelization of the world will need and profit from the energies of the African churches. Scholars, researchers, and students interested in understanding the current trends within contemporary missiology, in particular the presence and influence of African Christians and missionaries in Europe and North America, will find this book relevant to their work. It will also speak to pastors and congregational leaders who wish to understand how to work effectively with African immigrant Christians showing up in their cities and attending their churches. Finally, the book also speaks to African Christians who wish to understand the current Western mission field and how to be effective missionaries in the West."
