Studies in the History of World Christianity
In this third collection, Walls carries forward his decades-long project, upending staid interpretations of Christian history by examining the role of mission and cross-cultural transmission of the Gospel in the formation of World Christianity.
In essays marked by profound learning and his characteristic wit, Walls covers themes ranging from the transmission of Christian faith, to Africa in Christian thought and history, along with reflections on a broad range of mission figures, and a personal reflection on “missiology as a vocation.”
Andrew F. Walls is a former missionary to Sierra Leone and Honorary Professor in the University of Edinburgh; Professor of the History of Mission, Liverpool Hope University; and Emeritus Professor, Akrofi-Christaller Institute, Akropong, Ghana.
