Description

Barbara M. Cooper looks closely at the Sudan Interior Mission, an evangelicalChristian mission that has taken a tenuous hold in a predominantly Hausa Muslim area on the southernfringe of Niger. Based on sustained fieldwork, personal interviews, and archival research, thisvibrant, sensitive, compelling, and candid book gives a unique glimpse into an important dimensionof religious life in Africa. Cooper’s involvement in a violent religious riot provides auseful backdrop for introducing other themes and concerns such as Bible translation, medicaloutreach, public preaching, tensions between English-speaking and French-speakingmissionaries, and the Christian mission’s changing views of Islam.
