A Case Study on Reformed Mission Prospects in eNkumane, KwaZulu-Natal.
The author provides a rich description of the socio-economic, cultural and political life in the area he reviews. His fine description of the different layers of settlement in eNkumane from the 19th to the 21st century is truly remarkable. The second part of the book is dedicated to the history of the Methodist, Anglican and Roman Catholic missions surrounding the Reformed Mission Enkumane. Lastly, the book can claim to be a contribution to missiology: a reflection of what a mission is today in the light of the experiences gained in the Reformed Mission Enkumane. “This is an extremely substantial, well written and well documented book which deals with both historical and contemporary issues in mission in South Africa. Therefore, it has a significant relevance for the Church in South Africa today” (Prof. Duncan Graham).
