Freedom's Distant Shores: American Protestants and Post-Colonial Alliances with Africa

Synopsis

This volume examines relations between U. S. Protestants and Africa since the end of colonial rule. It draws attention to shifting ecclesiastical and socio-political priorities, especially the decreased momentum of social justice advocacy and the growing missionary influence of churches emphasising spiritual revival and personal prosperity. The book provides a thought-provoking assessment of U. S. Protestant involvements with Africa, and it proposes forms of engagement that build upon ecclesiastical dynamism within American and African contexts.
