This interesting volume challenges the long-held assumption that Christianity in India is nothing but a colonial or Western imposition. Leading experts here chronicle the histories and cultures of India's many Christian communities and show that local Indian leaders were the real agents of religious change in the subcontinent. These chapters range widely over various facets of Indian society and its religious developments. Of crucial importance is the fact that in exploring their subjects the contributors take pains to avoid the Eurocentric nature of most studies of India and represent Christianity from a genuinely Indocentric perspective. The result is an entirely new vista from which to view the history, features, and influence of Indian Christianity. Contributors: Peter B. Andersen Michael Bergunder Marine Carrin Penelope Carson Gunnel Cederlf Robert Eric Frykenberg E. M. Jackson Heike Liebau Iwona Milewska Geoffrey A. Oddie Indira Viswanathan Peterson Avril Powell Paula Richman Ja
