Item description for Converting Colonialism: Vision and Realities in Mission History, 1706-1914 (Studies in the History of Christian Missions) by Dana L. Robert...
Overview Elucidates the real-life struggle that missionaries had with European colonialism
Publishers Description In this volume, leading historians of Christianity in the non-Western world examine the relationship between missionaries and nineteenth-century European colonialism, and between indigenous converts and the colonial contexts in which they lived. Forced to operate within a political framework of European expansionism that lay outside their power to control, missionaries and early converts variously attempted to co-opt certain aspects of colonialism and to change what seemed prejudicial to gospel values.
These contributors are the leading historians in their fields, and the concrete historical situations that they explore show the real complexity of missionary efforts to "convert" colonialism.
