World Christianity in Western Europe

RRP:    £15.17
Christianity is a world religion with about 2.3 billion Christians.

It considers the complex Christian identity of people migrating to Europe, their stories and mission praxis. Here is a book including contributors who are scholars and practitioners. These scholars and practitioners are Europeans as well as migrants from the Majority World (Africans, Caribbean, South Asia and Latin Americans) employing interdisciplinary approach, their work encompasses the fields of Diaspora Missiology, Practical Theology, World Christianity, Contextual Theology and Pentecostal Studies.

Reverse In Ministry And Missions: Africans In The Dark Continent Of Europe: An Historical Study Of African Churches In Europe
Publisher:        Author House
RRP:                 £11.99
There has been a recent shift in global Christianity from North to South. Christianity, particularly Pentecostalism, is growing day by day in the continents of Africa, Latin America and Asia whereas it is declining in the Western world. Africans are now bringing the Gospel back to Europe and other parts of the world. This reverse in missions has been a recent phenomenon and is the subject of this book.

This book documents the history and contributions of European missions in Africa. It then chronicles the history and development of African Churches in Europe, focussing on the UK. It is passionately articulated that these Churches are certainly contributing positively to global and local Christianity. The historical development of Kingsway International Christian Centre (KICC) is documented to illustrate the impact African Churches are making in Europe. It is a book that is valuable to people interested in African Churches in the UK.

Partnership in Mission: A Black Majority Church Perspective on Mission and Church Unity
Publisher:        Instant Apostle
RRP:                 £12.99
What is the Black Majority Church? How heterogeneous is the movement? What opportunities are there for partnership with the wider church?These are just some of the questions this book seeks to address. Black Majority Churches have played a significant role in the history of the British church, encompassing a wide range of theologies, structures, missiologies, cultures and ethnicities. This heritage and rich diversity mean they have an essential contribution to make to the church's future mission in Britain.

This book challenges us to rethink our missiology in light of Britain's fast-changing social landscape. How can Black Majority Churches and other groups partner to effect institutional change in our culturally and ethnically diverse society? Israel Olofinjana offers case studies of partnerships in action and explores practical methods for how we can come together to respond to the needs and opportunities we see, overcoming challenges and finding common ground.
