Item description for A History of the Churches in Australasia (Oxford History of the Christian Church) by Ian Breward...

Overview
Australasia has developed strongly Christian societies. Based on research in widely scattered archives, this book not only deals with regional interactions and developments in microstates, but examines the various indigenous religious movements, which were earlier regarded as deviations from Christian orthodoxy but are now seen as significant adaptations of Christian teaching.

Publishers Description
This study of Australian, New Zealand, and Pacific Christianity opens up new perspectives on Christianization and modernization in this region. The reception of Christianity into Pacific cultures has produced strongly Christian societies. Based on research in widely scattered archives, this book not only deals with regional interactions but pays careful attention to developments in microstates, and to the variety of indigenous religious movements, which were earlier regarded as deviations from Christian orthodoxy but are now seen as significant adaptations of Christian teaching. In Australia and New Zealand too, European Christian beginnings have been given local emphases, producing churches with distinctive identities. Lay leadership is emphasized - not only in the Churches but as part of the Christian presence in the realms of politics, business, and culture. The broad liturgical, theological, constitutional, and pastoral developments of the 19th and 20th centuries are mapped, as a context for the striking changes which have taken place since the 1960s.
