n Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - Interpreting contemporary Christianity: Global processes and local identities, O. Kalu (Ed.)

Volume 37, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0256-9507



This book is made up of the collected papers presented at the Currents in World Christianity project held at the University of Pretoria in 2001. The project was concerned with the modern history of Protestant missions with an emphasis on the religious aspects of globalisation, and investigated the complex dynamics shaping the recent expansion of Christianity in the South and in parts of Asia using the insights of historians, anthropologists and sociologists. The papers reflect the intersections of varieties of external influences and indigenisation. They provide a fitting testimony to the commitment of the editor, the late Ogbu Kalu, to producing works of excellence in the fields of global mission and African Christianity.
