Reflection Questions

  • How would you describe the relationship between missions or churches and colonial governments in East Africa? How would you evaluate its impact? (see especially Oliver assignment)


  • How were missions affected by the political and religious environment in the Muslim Middle East during the late 19th and early 20th centuries?
