"[This] is the most comprehensive scholarly treatment of the major historical and current trends in the academic study of Christianity in Africa."
Dwight N. Hopkins, University of Chicago, USA
"Christianity is a common denominator of the astonishing diversity of Africa's fifty-four countries and more than two thousand ethnicities, languages, and indigenous religions. Elias Bongmba and his excellent collaborators-many of them African scholars-cannot hope to capture all that Christianity has been and is over the many hundreds of years it has been an African faith, yet their targeted insights offer readers both broad views and deep revelations."
Allen Roberts, University of California, Los Angeles, USA
