A History of the Church in Africa

Bengt Sundkler, Christopher Steed, "A History of the Church in Africa"
Cambridge University Press | May 29, 2000 | ISBN: 052158342X | PDF | 1252 pages | 9.7 MB

The late Bengt Sundkler, missionary, bishop, and academic, pioneered the study of independent churches in Africa. In this magisterial work, he reviews the entire history of the development of Christianity in all regions of the continent. In contrast to the conventional focus on the missionary enterprise, Professor Sundkler places the African converts at the centre of the study. African Christians, typically drawn from the margins of society, reinterpreted the Christian message, proselytised, governed local congregations, and organised independent churches. Emphasising African initiatives in the process of Christianisation, he argues that its development was shaped by African kings and courts, the history of labour migration, and local experiences of colonisation. This long-awaited book will become the standard reference on African Christian churches.

Learning from History: A Black Christian's Perspective on the Holocaust

Learning from History: A Black Christian's Perspective on the Holocaust
Publisher: Greenwood Press | ISBN: 0313315698 | edition 2000 | PDF | 152 pages | 1,08 mb

Because the Holocaust, the author contends, was at its core an extreme expression of a devastating racism, it has special significance for African Americans. Locke, a university professor, clergyman, and African American, reflects on the common experiences of African American and Jewish people as minorities and on the great tragedy that each community has experienced in its history–slavery and the Holocaust.
