For many people, particularly in the West, bilateral exchanges between their group or local church and an overseas partner have become an important part of church life. Such exchanges provide concrete experiences of what mission and ecumenism mean. In this book, Lothar Bauerochse analyses partnerships between German and African churches. The original German study goes into considerable detail: this English version outlines the main findings and highlights the opportunities, challenges and problems of such enterprises. The book deals with fundamental questions linked to missiology, development and ecumenical or intercultural learning. It seeks to formulate guidelines for enhancing true ecumenical partnerships and is essential reading for anyone planning such a relationship.
