This study seeks to understand one result of the syncretism of Southern African Christianity. It makes a contribution to complex and misunderstood practices of holistic healing among African traditional healers and members of the African and independent churches. It also explores evidence of ancestor veneration, possession by alien spirits, dance-induced trancing, and witch beliefs. The book contains a glossary of African terms (primarily Zulu), a 15-page bibliography, and indexes of names, subjects and biblical references, Both black and white researchers have participated in preparing the book, which should be of interest to missiologists, medical professionals, missionaries, anthropologists and sociologists.
