Toward an African Church in Mozambique
Kamba Simango and the Protestant Communtity in Manica and Sofala
- Dans le texte
Literature about Christianity in Africa disproportionately directs attention to the important work of Western missionaries, but to a great extent Africans were the agents of their own conversion. This is true of the key figure in this book, Kamba Simango. Encouraged from a distance by an American Congregationalist missionary, Fred R. Bunker, who shared his commitment to an African-led work, Simango, Tapera Nkomo and others struggled against difficult odds in the Mozambique Company region of Manica and Sofal a in Central Mozambique. This study reveals the humanity of its characters as well as their deep devotion to their task.
