Product Overview

"The volume analyzes local changes in Christianity in eight different cultures--in the Pacific, Jamaica, California, and Italy. The contributors are particularly effective in linking local religious and kinship systems to supralocal changes in Christian denominations, and in analyzing the motivations behind conversions, resistance, and disenchantment. Each essay includes a map, historical background, and a concise ethnographic case. The emphasis is on local interpretations rather than mission histories or theological variation, and the breadth of the cases makes the volume a very useful source for understanding contemporary religious change. A well-written and well-produced volume." Choice
