The explosive expansion of Christianity in Africa and Asia during the last two centuries constitutes one of the most remarkable cultural transformations in the history of mankind. Because it coincided with the spread of European economic and political hegemony, it tends to be taken for granted that Christian missions went hand in hand with imperialism and colonial conquest. In this book historians survey the relationship between Christian missions and the British Empire from the seventeenth century to the 1960s and treat the subject thematically, rather than regionally or chronologically. Many of these themes are treated at length for the first time, relating the work of missions to language, medicine, anthropology, and decolonization. Other important chapters focus on the difficult relationship between missionaries and white settlers, women and mission, and the neglected role of the indigenous evangelists who did far more than European or North American missionaries to spread the Christian religion - belying the image of Christianity as the 'white man's religion'.

"Your Christians are so unlike your Christ." Mohandas Gandhi famously critiqued the contemporary church with this pithy phrase. Church planter Tim Morey keeps this challenge in mind as he coaches other planters in the Evangelical Covenant Church. In this book he brings his experience, combined with research and theological reflection, to help your church cultivate the irreducible qualities of an embodied apologetic: a community that is revealed by its faithful to be experiential, communal and enacted.

Von der Polizei nach Namen und Wohnort gefragt, will er beides nicht preisgeben, um die Christen in seiner Hauskirche und in seinem Heimatland China nicht zu gefährden. Er antwortet: "Ich bin ein Mann des Himmels. Ich wohne im Evangeliumsdorf." So kommt Bruder Yun zu seinem Spitznamen "Heavenly Man". Ein Leben wie im Abenteuerroman. Oder besser: wie eine neue Version der Apostelgeschichte. Mit 16 zum Glauben gekommen. Erhält von Gott Aufträge, auch in Träumen und Visionen. Mehrfach verhaftet, aber auf wundersame Weise entkommen. Schließlich doch Gefängnis und schwerste Folterungen. Durch Gottes Gnade standhaft geblieben. Er bleibt ein Zeuge Gottes. Durch ihn und zahllose andere Christen breitet sich das Evangelium in China wie in riesigen Wellen aus. Mit seinem Buch will er Gottes Taten bezeugen und die Christen im Westen aufrütteln. Damit in ihnen die Liebe zu Gott und den Menschen wieder stark wird.

This is a book about Christianity in one particular region in Kenya. It walks into churches, listens to sermons, dances to music, and interviews the people sitting in the pews, all with the aim of understanding how spiritual power enables these churches to function as agents within their contemporary society. Ecclesiastical communities in Africa draw upon divine power in order to engage in modernity-related topics. Humans are not unresponsive to global flows of meaning; they are integrative agents who fashion their world by living in it. The kind of modernity arising from these churches does not blindly follow Western forms, but flows from its own internal logic in which spiritual power occupies central hermeneutical function. Theological resources contribute to the formation of sociological expressions. Divine power pertains directly to human constructs, which then allows the churches to actively "image" God for the development of unique forms of modernity arising on the continent.
