Converting Colonialism by Dana L. Robert
Book DescriptionIn this volume, leading historians of Christianity in the non-Western world examine the relationship between missionaries and nineteenth-century European colonialism, and between indigenous converts and the colonial contexts in which they lived. Forced to operate within a political framework of European expansionism that lay outside their power to control, missionaries and early converts variously attempted to co-opt certain aspects of colonialism and to change what seemed prejudicial to gospel values. These contributors are the leading historians in their fields, and the concrete historical situations that they explore show the real complexity of missionary efforts to "convert" colonialism.

Although stereotyped as an aspect of colonialism, Christian missions brought about massive shifts in the nature of Christianity, which by this century has become a religion largely practiced outside the west. This illuminating book provides a brief history of Christian missions and their relationship to the current globalization of Christianity.
