His descriptions of the African church goes beyond most comparative accounts Dec 11, 2006
AFRICAN SAINTS: SAINTS, MARTYRS AND HOLY PEOPLE FROM THE CONTINENT OF AFRICA surveys holy people from the African church - something often omitted from considerations of saints - and comes from an Episcopal priest and former foreign service officer who spent many years in Africa. His descriptions of the African church goes beyond most comparative accounts which come from missionary sources, reflecting a diverse background and approach producing chapters strong in not only biographical content, but inclusion of religious notes such as Islamic relationships.
