9780198089209: Historiography of Christianity in India

Moving beyond the missionary perspective, this book adopts a historian's approach to the documentation of Christianity in the region. Webster's first-hand knowledge of social dynamics of the region as well as familiarity with sources form the basis of this socio-cultural history of the Christians in India. Wide in its scope, his narrative reaches back to the early days of the Europeans in India, as well as strides forward in meeting the challenges of modern India like religious conversion and identity of Indian Christians. From tracking down the elusive Ditt in Indian Christian history to the understanding of Christianity through the perspectives of subalterns like women and Dalits, this book furthers a case for the interpretation of Indian social history through Christian history of the region.

About the Author:


John C.B. Webster is a trustee at Union Theological Seminary in the city of New York. He has previously taught at Baring Union Christian College, Guru Nanak Dev University, Punjab, as well as at the United Theological College in Bangalore.

Review:


"Webster's book effectively meets the need of its intended conversation partners, both Christian and non-Christian academic historians of India, as it critically analyzes the major themes and concerns in Indian Christian historiography... the author has made a significant contribution to the field of Indian historiography. Those engaged in mission studies in the West will also find it informative. It will remain a handy textbook for graduate students and teachers of history of Christianity in India for years to come." --Lutheran Inquiry
