    Christology in Dialogue with Muslims: A Critical Analysis of Christian Presentations of Christ for Muslims from the Ninth and Twentieth Centuries

    This book analyses Christian presentations of Christ for Muslims in the most creative periods of Christian-Muslim dialogue, the first half of the ninth century and the second half of the twentieth century.

  3.  Nigeria’s Christian Revolution: The Civil War Revival and Its Pentecostal Progeny (1967-2006)

    Nigeria’s Christian Revolution: The Civil War Revival and Its Pentecostal Progeny (1967-2006)

    Nigeria has become the arena of one of the most remarkable religious movements of recent times, reflecting the shift in the global centre of Christianity from the North to the South. This book tells the story of one sector of this movement from its roots in the Nigerian civil war to the turn of the newmillennium. It describes a revival that occurred among the Igbo people of Eastern Nigeria, and the new Pentecostal churches it generated, and documents the changes that have occurred as the movement has responded to global flows and local demands. As such, it explores the nature of revivalist and Pentecostal experience, but does so against the backdrop of local socio-political and economic developments, such as decolonisation and civil war, as well broader processes, such as modernisation and globalisation. Richard Burgess has worked in Nigeria since 1990 and until recently was a lecturer at the Theological College of Northern Nigeria, Jos. He is currently a research fellow at the University of Birmingham. “This study of Revival and Pentecostalism in eastern Nigeria is an important contribution both to the history of Christianity in Nigeria and to the growing study of African Neo-Pentecostalism. The modern Pentecostal or charismatic movement is one of the most significant phenomena in the recent history of Christianity in Africa, transforming the ways in which Christianity as a whole relates to traditional African culture and helping to shape sub-Saharan Africa responses to globalisation and modernity. Richard Burgess presents a detailed and convincing account of the rise and significance of modern Pentecostalism in a particular part of Africa - the movement of renewal within the established Christian churches among the Igbo of eastern Nigeria from the 1960s. He identifies the Scripture Union in Igbo secondary schools as the seed-bed for this revival, given poignancy for many of the participants by the experience of suffering during the Biafran civil war and by the energies released in the subsequent reconstruction of Igbo society as part of a reunited Nigeria. Many of the student leaders of this period have gone on to exercise leadership in the burgeoning new pentecostal churches; others have become bishops and leaders in the older churches, such as the influential Anglican Church of Nigeria.” Kevin Ward, Senior Lecturer in African Religious Studies, University of Leeds Learn More

  4. Christianity and Cultures: Shaping Christian Thinking in Context

    Christianity and Cultures: Shaping Christian Thinking in Context

    David Emmanuel Singh and Bernard Farr This volume is a way of marking an important milestone in the relatively short story of the Oxford Centre for Mission Studies (OCMS). The papers here have been exclusively sourced from Transformation, a quarterly journal of OCMS and seek to provide a tripartite view of Christianity’s engagement with cultures by focusing on the question: how is Christian thinking forming or reforming through its interaction with the varied contexts it encounters? As Christianity has taken and still takes shape in multiple contexts, it naturally results in a variety of expressions and emphases. One can gain an appreciation of these by studying different strands of theological-missiological thinking, socio-political engagements and forms of family relationships in interaction with the host cultures.

  6. Transformation after Lausanne:

    Transformation after Lausanne:

    Lausanne '74 inspired evangelicals around the world to take seriously the full implications of the Gospel for mission. This was especially true of a worldwide network of radical evangelical mission theologians and practitioners, whose post-Lausanne reflections found harbour in the notion of "Mission as Transformation". This missiology integrated evangelism and social concern like no other, and it lifted up theological voices coming from the Two Thirds World to places of prominence. This book documents the definitive gatherings, theological tensions, and social forces within and without evangelicalism that led up to Mission as Transformation. And it does so through a global-local grid that points the way toward greater holistic mission in the 21st century. Learn More

  7. Values and Participation: Development in Rural Indonesia

    Values and Participation: Development in Rural Indonesia

    Socio-religious values and socio-economic development are inter-dependant, inter-related and are constantly changing in the context of macro political structures, economic policy, religious organizations and globalization; and micro influences such as local affinities, identity, politics, leadership and beliefs. The three Lopait communities in Central Java, Indonesia provide an excellent model of a rich and complex negotiations and interactions among all the above factors. The book argues that the comprehensive approach in understanding the socio-religious values of each local community is essential to accurately describing their respective identity which will help institutions and agencies, both governmental and non-governmental, to relate to these communities with dignity and respect.

  8. Leadership in a Slum: A Bangkok Case Study

    Leadership in a Slum: A Bangkok Case Study

    This book looks at leadership in the social context of a slum in Bangkok from an angle different from traditional studies which measure well educated Thais on leadership scales derived in the West. Using both systematic data collection and participant observation, it develops a culturally preferred model as well as a set of models based in Thai concepts that reflect on-the-ground realities. This work challenges the dominance of the patron-client rubric for understanding all forms of Thai leadership and offers a view for understanding leadership rooted in local social systems, contrary to approaches that assume the universal applicability of leadership research findings across all cultural settings. It concludes by looking at the implications of the anthropological approach for those who are involved in leadership training in Thai settings and beyond. Learn More

  9. Leadership and Authority: Bula Matari and Life – Community Ecclesiology in Congo

    Leadership and Authority: Bula Matari and Life – Community Ecclesiology in Congo

    This book proposes that Christian theology in Africa can have a significant impact if a critical understanding of the socio-political situation in contemporary Africa is taken seriously. The Christian leadership in post-colonial Africa has cloned its understanding and use of authority on the Bula Matari model, which issued from the brutality of colonialism and political absolutism in post-colonial Africa. This model has caused many problems in churches, including dysfunction, conflicts, division and lack of prophetic ministry. The book proposes that Life-Community ecclesiology can liberate authority, where leadership is a function, not a status and 'apostolic succession' belongs to all the people of God. Learn More
