This book presents an African Christian movement full of vitality and creativity. The reader will meet believers who drink milk so that they may dream about angels, reports about funerals where the mourners dance with the coffin on their shoulders and church members who are ritually not allowed to fertilize their fields or wear neck ties. The author's unique insight into Malawi's Christian community addresses important issues in society. Why have 'Spirit Churches,' including Pentecostalism, been so successful in Malawi? Why do some religious groups still refuse medical help, up to the point that children die of cholera? How did the independent churches deal with the colonial trauma? In this masterful portrait, Strohbehn takes the reader from industrial mine compounds to rural colonies, where churches have set up their own spiritual and political rule. He carefully dissects the fine lines between traditional notions and Christianity's influence. We find a spiritual portrait of the Ngoni people, a fascinating cultural analysis of dancing and an encounter with a unique style of preaching.

Conflicted Power In Malawian Christianity

The volume constitutes Klaus Fiedler's crowning contribution to scholarship. Essays in the first half of the book focus on Malawian Christianity and how contrasting Powers, Gospel and Secular, engage each other, creating social, political and cultural conflict in the process. In the second half, Fiedler examines general missiological themes. These essays provide a broader missiological background, offering a theoretical framework necessary for appreciating the essays in the first half. He concludes with a chapter that reviews selected seminal books on themes under study. Throughout the volume Fiedler applies the "restorationist revival theory" he constructed in The Story of Faith Missions, an earlier 1994 work putting emphasis on non classical missions and churches, not systematically covered in earlier scholarship. This volume, the first of its kind on Malawian Christianity, will long remain an indispensable text for those interested in Missiology and Malawian Christianity.

Dual Religiosity In Northern Malawi

Over a century much of Africa south of the Sahara embraced the Christian religion. Malawi, where 80% of the population identify as Christian is no exception, nor are the Ngonde at its northern border with Tanzania. While it is difficult to find someone who does not claim to be a Christian, African traditional religion is by no means dead and often practiced by many. While the two religions are not “mixed”, but they are both realities in many a Christians life, though realities of a different kind. The author explores the intricate and often varied relationship between the two and considers factors which increase or decrease dual religiosity.

The Christian faith is comprehensive and diverse, so the question, what the centre is, can be asked. Different answers have been given, to which this book adds another. The venture of the Christian faith is missions, following Kenneth Scott Latourette's thesis that the Holy Spirit moves forward the history of the church by bringing in ever new revivals, which produce ever new organisations. Therefore missions are not the children of the churches, but of the revivals, and Africa was not evangalised by the European and American churches, but by the Europeans and American mission societies.

Neben vielen anderen Beratungs- und Begleitungsformen ist Mentoring als eine Form der individuellen Forderung von Menschen in den letzten Jahren zunehmend bekannt geworden. Dabei wird Mentoring zumeist unter dem Aspekt der Individualforderung und weniger aus kulturbezogener Perspektive gesehen. In den individualistisch gepragten westlichen Kulturen liegt der Fokus auf der personlichen Entfaltung des Einzelnen. Der Mentoringprozess soll das Potenzial entdecken und entwickeln helfen. Der Mentee erlebt in dieser Entwicklungsmassnahme eine Unterstutzung in seinem personlichen und berufichen Werdegang. In den kollektivistischen Kulturen Afrikas steht nicht so sehr die Einzelpersonlichkeit im Fokus der Betrachtung, sondern viel mehr die Gruppe, in die der Einzelne stark eingebunden ist. Auch hier ist zu beobachten, dass Menschen im Sinne von Mentoring gefordert werden und sich in ihrer Berufung entwickeln. Dabei wird allerdings fast ganz auf den Einsatz von Programmen und schriftlichen Tools verzichtet. Hartmut Knorr nimmt in diesem Buch ein Thema auf, dem in unserer globalisierten und vernetzten Welt immer mehr Bedeutung zukommt. Er definiert und beschreibt zunachst umfassend das abendlandische Verstandnis von Mentoring und vergleicht es mit afrikanischen Lern- und Lehrkulturen. Dazu stellt er die Ergebnisse einer vergleichenden Analyse im Kontext von Leitern aus afrikanischen Pfingstgemeinden vor. Das Buch gibt auch wichtige, praktische Hinweise fur Mentoring im interkulturellen Bezug, von denen viele auch auf andere, nicht westliche Kulturen ubertragbar sein durften

The missionaries have often been accused of having destroyed African cultures, be it deliberately or because they did not understand. The author draws a very different picture in his study of a number of German missionaries in various parts of Tanzania, who had a high appreciation of African culture. He argues that acceptance of inculturation attempts do not depend on race but on role, and the same applies to both Black and White.
