In The Cross-Cultural Process in christian History, Andrew F. Walls shows he has not lost the capacity to surprise readers with new insights into things they thought long settled. In essays that sparkle with wit and insight Walls reaches back to Eusebius of Edessa in the fourth century and down to the contemporary world. His seer's eyes reach from "Old Athens" and "New Jerusalem", to the vast continents of South America and Asia, to his beloved Africa. On the way he offers fresh understandings of Pentecostalism, African traditional religion, and the ironic ways in which the western missionary movement often accomplished things -- both for good and for ill -- that its agents never dreamed of.

About the Author:

Andrew F. Walls is Professor of World Christianity at Princeton Theological Seminary and the founder of the Center for the Study of Christianity in the non-Western World at the University of Edinburgh.

Review:

'All three parts are interesting and relevant and make a contribution to knowledge of the topic. They are also written in penetrable English that is straightforward and easy to read.... There is much fascinating information here, and while to the few it may seem commonplace that the church has retreated from a Christendom situation into dominance in the non-western world - to most this vaguely-recognised phenomenon is startlingly new and only semi-known.' Frank Whaling
