Author(s): Vincent J. Donovan, (preface by Lamin Sanneh)
This profound and thought-provoking book is one of the classics of modern missionary writing.
Superficially just a good missionary story, about how one man brought a number of groups of Masai people in east Africa to Christian faith, it is something much more than that. For in what the author says about the method and content of evangelism; the meaning of the eucharist; and the nature of ministry, we are led back to the question our understandings of the mission of the church in all its contexts.
For Vincent Donovan, his experiences in Africa meant a total reappraisal of the meaning of his faith, and therefore a rediscovery of his Christianity. His book, which is written with moving simplicity, continues to represent a provocative challenge to all those engaged in issues of evangelism and multiculturalism.
Vincent J. Donovan is an American Roman Catholic who conducted pioneer missionary work among the Masai people of Tanzania. Lamin Sanneh is D.Willis James Professor of Missions and World Christianity at Yale University.
