Predný obal
LIT Verlag Münster, 2002 - 228 strán (strany)
One of the striking features of the changed demography of world Christianity has been the emergence and growth of the African Instituted Churches (AICs). This book is therefore provided for those who desire to study the African initiatives in Christianity. The book is intended to serve as a valuable material to teachers and students of African Instituted Churches. The customs, culture and traditions of the African or any other peoples of the world are to serve as beautiful compliments to the Christian faith and belief, and not diametrically opposed to it.
