  1. Corruption and the Church

    Corruption and the Church

    How do Christians in the global south see the relationship between the church and corruption? This book summarises the views of 101 leaders of churches, Christian faith-based organisations and anti-corruption organisations, as told during in-depth interviews with the author. Capturing voices from across three continents, this summary and analyses of their views makes for some uncomfortable reading, but suggests some constructive ways forward. Learn More

  2. Presenting Christ to Muslims

    Presenting Christ to Muslims

    This book presents an analysis of Christian presentations of Christ for Muslims in the most creative period of Christian‐Muslim dialogue, the first half of the 9th and the second half of the 20th century. In these two historical moments, Christians made a serious effort to present their faith in Christ in terms that take into account Muslim perceptions of him, with a view to bridging the gap between Muslim and Christian convictions produced by Muslim rejection of Christ’s divine sonship and the death of Christ by crucifixion.

  3. Asia’s Forgotten Christian Story

    Asia’s Forgotten Christian Story

    A largely forgotten story in Asian Christian history is the spread of the Church through missionary‐sending monasteries. This book focuses especially on the 8th‐9th century period, when the thriving Church of the East, led by the dynamic Patriarch Timothy I, not only continued to spread to India and China but also reached out to Muslims in its heartland of Mesopotamia.

  4. Seeking Reconciliation

    Seeking Reconciliation

    With a history of racial violence and in recent years, low‐level ethnic tensions, the themes of peaceful coexistence and social harmony are recurring ones in the discourse of Malaysian society. In such a context, this book looks at the role of the church as a reconciling agent, arguing that a reconciling presence within a divided society necessitates an ethos of peacemaking. Such an ethos is created and sustained when Christians understand that their identity has been transformed in Jesus Christ. Learn More

    Bridging the Cultural Gap

    This is an abridged version of Ole Kirchheiner’s Regnum book, Culture and Christianity Negotiated in Hindu Society. Through an examination of the Nepali church the study pays special attention to the way ordinary Christians have been able to settle social and religious issues to live and work together with the traditional religious people of Nepal, and maintain a good family life.

  6. Unity & Reconciliation in Rwanda

    Unity & Reconciliation in Rwanda

    In the last ten years of the 20th century, the world was twice confronted with unbelievable news from Africa. Can we compare the situation in South Africa with that in Rwanda?

  7. Charismatic Leadership in Islam

    Charismatic Leadership in Islam

    To understand Islam, one must understand the people who practice their faith. Consequently, this book is a detailed ethnographic study of two contemporary Sufi communities. It explores the perplexing range of theological and ritual variation, arguing for a direct correlation between Sufi multiformity and the agency of the spiritual leader, the Shaikh. He is principally responsible for shaping the community under his leadership. Learn More

  8. To Fulfil, Not to Destroy

    To Fulfil, Not to Destroy

    In today’s globalized world as we struggle desperately for social harmony amidst growing religious fundamentalism and militancy, Christians convinced of Christ’s universal relevance are often hard-pressed to find a way to communicate that relevance faithfully and respectfully. The term ’fulfilment’ broadly characterizes a framework of engagement rooted in the New Testament, which emerges at various moments in the Church’s encounter with other faiths. This approach seeks to affirm Christ’s absolute and universal lordship while demonstrating sensitivity and respect for the religious experience of people of other faiths. This study presents a case for the revitalization of this fulfilment tradition based on a recovery and assessment of the fulfilment approaches of Hindu converts to Christ in pre-independence India.

  9. Confronting Corruption: Letting the Bible Speak

    Confronting Corruption: Letting the Bible Speak

    Corruption blights the lives of countless people around our world. It is a scourge of the poor and weak. It is a road block to change. It is detestable to God. The purpose of this book is to transform attitudes and behaviours of Christians who live in societies where corrupt behaviour is a fact of life and to do this by letting the Bible, as God’s word, speak. The book is intended to be used for weekly reading by pastors at church services to remind congregations that corruption has no place in Christian life, as a resource for Bible colleges in training pastors/church workers and for small group Bible study.

  10. Deliver Us from Evil

    Deliver Us from Evil

    Christians have been largely silent on the issue of corruption. Roberto Laver has been one of the few voices of the Christian community calling for the church to stand up and address this issue. Laver’s scholarship undergirded by his faith and concern for the poor and marginalized, gives Christians a compelling wake-up call to confront the scourge. In so doing, he takes a big step toward filling a conspicuous gap in the literature of mission study and practice. Learn More
