Born of the nineteenth-century Evangelical Awakening, and closely linked to Hudson Taylor and the China Inland Mission he found in 1865, faith missions were unique in two key areas: they were interdenominational and they held firmly to the 'faith principle' of financial support. The faith mission movement has lost none of its vitality and relevance as it continues to play an important evangelistic role in Africa and worldwide.

The result of more than a decade of reasearch in Africa, Europe and the United States, and extensively supported by maps and charts, this book is the most comprehensive study available on the faith mission movement in Africa. Setting Faith mission in the context of the many revival and missionary movements which have shaped Protestant church history, the author describes their spiritual and practical evolution over 125 years, and outlines the challenges they face today.

Klaus Fiedler, a mission historian and winner of the George W.Peters Prize in Missiology 1993, lectures at Chancellor College, University of Malawi.
