Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungChristianity has been spread in Africa by Africans. This book probes deeply into the experiences of African Christians as they explored the new faith, interpreted it in the context of their own cultural values, appropriated it for themselves, and forged their distinctive churches.The studies included in Eastern African Expressions of Christianity are by prominent Tanzanian and American historians, anthropologists, political scientists, and church people. They examine a complete set of historical issues regarding the translation of religious meanings across cultural boundaries; the religious and social appeal of the new faith; and the vital roles played by African evangelists, teachers, and translators in the spread of Christianity and development of an African church.
