Description

This volume contains 17 articles examining the transformation of European Christianity into world-wide religion. The papers refer, among other things, to the phenomenon of conversion; the invention of printing and other evangelistical aids; mission versus anthropology; "propoganda fide"; Zinzendorf and the Moravians; and the missionary as frontiersman, utopian, subserver of alien cultures and one-time popular hero. Associated problems include missionary anti-feminism, racialism, fear of syncretism and suspicion of Christian accommodation to other cultures. This survey of reformation and counter-reform overseas aims to present Christian missions as part of the history of humankind and the interaction of cultures and also comments on the impact of Vatican II and Christianity in the 21st century.
