Reviews

"This is a book providing a variety of aspects about the AICs and, thus, will appeal to the different interests of different readers. For those interested but not familiar with the field, it might serve as an introduction and an inducement to do more reading and research. Certainly it should find a place in the libraries of social science departments and theological colleges, and be of value to present or future missionaries to Africa. One of its virtues is that a good balance is represented because of the large number of contributors." - Missiology
