Zimbabwe: The Impact of Christian Protest in Sociopolitical Transformation, ca. 1900–ca. 2000
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"This scholarly yet accessible book is both timely and undeniably thought-provoking. It irrevocably draws the reader not only to the history of Christian sociopolitical involvement in Africa but also sheds light on the seeds of the continent's current state of affairs."
--Dr. Ben Shikwati, Kenyatta University, Nairobi, Kenya
"An outstanding, informative, and inspiring study that provides fresh and significant insights for today's church in the fight against all the vices of society, including any new form of colonialism to be found anywhere on African soil--and beyond."
--Dr. Abi T. Ngunga, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, UK
"This book offers a fresh perspective on the role of African Christians and their leadership in the struggle for independence in colonial Zimbabwe. In contrast to much scholarship on Zimbabwean history, this work contends that Christian influence, both Roman Catholic and Protestant alike, . . . was significant from the sixties in the fight against colonialism."
--Dr. Erwin van der Meer, Zoetermeer, The Netherlands
