Christian missions have often been seen as the religious arm of Western imperialism. What is rarely appreciated is the role they played in bringing about an end of the Western colonial empires after the Second World War. This book explores this neglected subject.Here respected authorities on the history of missions explore new territory. These chapters examine from diverse angles the linkages between Christianity, nationalism, and the dissolution of the colonial empires in Asia and Africa. This work not only sheds light on the relation of religion and politics but also uncovers the sometimes paradoxical implications of the church's call to bring the gospel to all the world.ContentsContributorsIntroduction: Christianity and the End of EmpireBrian StanleyPART IMISSIONARY TRADITIONS, NATIONAL LOYALTIES, AND THE UNIVERSAL GOSPEL1.
