http://schema.org/description

  • "In his introduction, editor David Lumsdaine offers a historical overview of evangelicalism in Asia, provides a theoretical framework for understanding evangelical impact on the global south, and summarizes the findings presented in the remainder of the book. Six individual case studies follow, focusing respectively on the situation in China, Western India, Northeast India, Indonesia, South Korea, and the Philippines. The contributors, mainly younger scholars based in Asia, bring first hand-knowledge to their chapters and employ both field and archival research to develop their data and analyses. The result is a groundbreaking work that will be indispensable to everyone concerned with the future of the region. - Publisher."
  • ""Although a minority of the Asian population, Protestants in Asia are a fast growing group. In some cases, religion has effected positive changes for poor and marginalised people; but there are doubts that it has the cultural currency needed to generate political changes in governments such as that in China."--Résumé de l'éditeur."
