The Primal Vision is widely regarded as one of the most important books ever published on the subject of African Christianity.
In a sympathetic and warmly empathetic style, John Taylor tellsof his encountrs with many different African people, and reflects theologically on the conversations he has shared with men, women and children in a wide variety of circumstances.
By suggesting that the missionary should listen and learn from indigenous culture, and appreciate his status as a guest, the book points towards a revisionist understanding of Christian mission.
"'Profound, artistic, sensitive, and brilliantly written.' Expository Times 'The best book on Africa I have ever read.' Theology"
