This book covers the history of Christianity in Africa from the first century to the present, highlighting the roles of the Coptic and Ethiopian Churches in preserving Christianity and inspiring African nationalism (in the case of the Ethiopian Church). The author discusses the involvement of Africans and African-Americans in the planting of Christianity in Africa, and presents an in-depth and extensive study of the origin and development of African theology. This is the first book to cover the presence of Christianity in Africa from the first century in a continuous fashion, discussing all the contributions of Africans in the formulation of doctrine as well as covering contemporary issues.

MEDIA REVIEWS
..."a welcome, and desperately needed, addition to a growing missiological literature on African Christian history and historical theology written by Africans. This work would be an excellent text for courses on African Christian history, ecclesiology, and theology. It is certainly a must for the serious student of the African Christian scenario."-Southwest Journal of Theology
"I believe that students of Native American mission will find McLoughlin's work (here and elsewhere) stimulating. Parts of the book could also be used in a missiology resding course."-Missiology
"This title offers a thorough overview of the Christian Church in Africa: a history of African Christianity from the first century to the present, an analysis of missionary thought and practice, a discussion of the African response to the missionaries, and an exposition of current African Christian theology."-Bulletin of Bangor Theological Seminary
