В книге об африканских христианских церквях рассматривается полная история развития христианства во всех регионах континента. В отличие от обычного для таких исследований интереса, в основном, к миссионерской деятельности, авторы ставят в центре своего исследования местные африканские особенности христианства. Африканские христиане, обычно занимавшие лучшее положение в обществе, давали иное толкование христианским текстам, прозелитизму, управлению местными конгрегациями и организации независимых церквей. Подчеркивая инициативы африканцев в процессе христианизации, авторы доказывают, что развитие церкви было сформировано африканскими королями и их придворными, историей трудовой миграции и колонизации.Бенгт Сандклер был ведущим специалистом по африканской христианской
Церкви, он также задавал тон в изучении независимых Церквей в Африке. У него была долгая карьера миссионера в Южной Африке и в Танзании, где он стал лютеранским епископом Букобы в Танзании, перед возвращением в
Швецию в качестве профессора истории церкви в Университете Упсалы.
Кристофер Стид был помощником Бенгта Сандклера в данном исследовании, и в настоящее время он преподает африканскую историю в Университете Упсалы.Образцы сканов:

Sample text

That the controversy itself was a tragedy for the Christian cause as a whole was not seen by the conquerors who preferred to expel their adversaries rather than attempting to integrate them as a healthy salt in the body of the Church. It needs to be added, however, that despite his anti-Donatist and anti-Pelagian polemics, St Augustine was led to conceive an in®nitely more wide-hearted theology. More particularly, his teaching about grace, according to which faith itself is a gift of God, laid the foundation for a truly Catholic theology.

He has interpreted his own life in an autobiography, Confessions, in the form of a long prayer to God. 20 These words come from the introduction to Confessions: `You have created us to yourself, and our heart cannot be quieted unless it ®nds rest in you', Fecisti nos ad te et inquietum est cor nostrum donec requiescat in te. As bishop he had a biblical message to convey. When he found himself suddenly chosen as bishop, he insisted that he take ample time for a retreat so as to read the Bible. He had an extraordinary memory and was able, while preaching, to recall examples and stories from the Old and New Testaments.

For one thing, the faith had not reached deep enough. It was a court religion, the concern of a ruling caste. The people in the countryside had only a super®cial understanding of what it was all about.
