This work takes as its subject the emergence of a distinctive Third-World - particularly African - Christianity, as it uncouples itself from the Western cultural package in which Christianity was introduced there. A major shift in the Christian population of the world is taking place. By the turn of the century 80 per cent of Christians will live in non-Western countries - a reversal of the situation a century ago. In the past, missionaries were accused of "imperializing". Today, the focus is reversed - non-Western nations have much to teach the West about the Gospel.
