Aspects of the History of the Church in Botswana
Published 2007 | 376 Pages | ISBN 978-1-875053-64-3
This book deals with interesting aspects of the history of Botswana. It is a collection of essays edited by Fidelis Nkomazana and Laurel Fanner.
This work adds value to previous works which focused on institutional life and prominent leaders in Botswana. While some of its essays continue to address institutional issues, others look at the impact of Christianity on the ordinary people with limited power in society. This book considers many broad issues: unity; the role of education; the encounter between Christianity and culture; the role of medical services on church planting and society; the interaction between cultural sacred power and Christianity; Catholicism and ethics; independent churches. Also considered are the role of women, the language factor, the church and land questions, inter-, an intra-religious relations, demographics and Christianity. It concludes with proposals on directions for future research.
