Summary
A Heritage of Faith is the story of the development of Christianity in Nigeria from the earliest times to the present. It reveals the breath-taking diversity, dynamism and innovativeness that has characterised, and that continues to define Christianity in Nigeria. A Heritage of Faith weaves the personal stories and pioneering efforts of the major figures that played significant roles in shaping their era, the prevailing Christian thought that defined each period, and parallel developments in the Nigerian state, into a fascinating history. This history which begins with the return of the liberated slaves from Sierra Leone in 1839, is divided into six movements: the Missionary movement, African Church movement, Prophetic/Healing movement, Pentecostal movement, Evangelical movement and Charismatic movement. Each movement traces the origin and growth of new and unique religious experiences and how they shaped Christian experience and witness in Nigeria. A Heritage of Faith connects the events happening in all parts of the country and in the different eras into a moving and absorbing story. This history has been greatly enriched by well-illustrated charts and the largest collection of photographs of any book on Nigeria's church history. It convincingly argues that Christianity has thrived and triumphed in Nigeria. --
