Kurzbeschreibung

Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand, sometimes grouped together as Australasia, are lands in which Christianity sits in a remarkable awkwardness. This landmark volume, which includes contributions by Australia's and New Zealand's leading historians and theologians, explores the way that Christianity has made a home «down under.» Individual essays provide case studies in history, biography, missiology, theology, literature, and hymnody. This work also includes broad-ranging scholarly debate on gospel and culture, on the nature of history, and on the differing claims of contextual and non-contextual theologies. Mapping the Landscape: Essays in Australian and New Zealand Christianity honours the distinguished Australasian historian, Professor Ian Breward, who for over thirty-five years has taken a pre-eminent position in «mapping» the religious landscapes of Australia and New Zealand.
