The Vision And Work Of Andrew F. Walls. Recent years have seen a paradigm shift in Christian self-understanding. In place of the eurocentric model of â€œChristendom,â€ a new understanding has emerged of Christianity as a â€œworldâ€ movement. At the cornerstone of this new perspective lies the work of a remarkable scholar, Andrew F. Walls, whose book, "The Missionary Movement in Christian History" was named by Christianity Today as one of the hundred most influential books of the twentieth century. Understanding World Christianity introduces Wallsâ€™s work and explores its wide-ranging implications for the understanding of history, mission, the formative place of Africa in the Christian story, and the crosscultural transmission of faith.
