About-

Culture Change in Ethiopia
An Evangelical Perspective

This book addresses the causes and the consequences of culture change in Ethiopia, from Haile Selassie to the present, based on thorough academic research. Although the book is written from an evangelical perspective, it invites Ethiopians from all religious, ideological, and ethnic backgrounds to reflect on their past, analyze their present and to engage in unity with diversity to face the future. It also appeals to the conscience of global and regional powers who have been directly and indirectly involved in the affairs of Ethiopia.vv

Endorsements & Reviews-

Alemayehu Mekonnen has brought a keen Christian perspective on the sweeping cultural change which has accompanied Ethiopia from Haile Selassie to the present. He is a keen observer of both leadership dynamics and culture change. With its ancient Christian history and its strategic placement as the bridge between N. Africa and sub-Saharan Africa, what happens in Ethiopia should interest all Christians everywhere.
--Dr Timothy Tennent, President Asbury Theological Seminary

What is Ethiopia like today and what is the role of the various branches of the Christian church there? What is the way forward? Ethiopian missiologist, Alemayehu Mekonnen, answers all these and related questions in a riveting account of key events of the last 70 years of his homeland's history. Must reading for anyone who wants to be a truly global Christian!
--Craig L. Blomberg, Distinguished Professor of NT, Denver Seminary

This is a book born out of the author's deep love for his country and his people. The book is an informative and comprehensive introduction to Ethiopia that is laced with a passionate vision for authentic African Christian voices to be heard.
--M. Daniel Carroll R. (Rodas), Distinguished Professor of OT, Denver Seminary

While sharing his fascinating journey from prison to freedom, Alemayehu Mekonnen exposes the chaotic history of Ethiopia pre-1974 under Emperor Haile Selassie and post-1974 under the Marxist-Leninist regime. He concludes the book with significant recommendations for the Ethiopian Evangelical church today.
--Helene Dallaire, Associate Professor of Old Testament and Director of Messianic Judaism Programs, Denver Seminary
