Product Description
Stories of African Christianity in New York City. A groundbreaking work of ethnography, urban studies, and theology, Mark Gornik’s 'Word Made Global' explores the recent development of African Christianity in New York City. Drawing especially on ten years of intensive research into three very different African immigrant churches, Gornik sheds light on the pastoral, spiritual, and missional dynamics of this exciting global, transnational Christian movement. The observations and ramifications described here are probably similar to other large cities in the northern hemisphere (e.g., Amsterdam, London, Moscow) where African immigrant Christianity is alive and well.

"Mark Gornik's fascinating, in-depth look at African Christianity in New York City should be read by anyone concerned to understand the future of the new, global Christianity, and especially by those doing urban ministry. . . . This is the kind of analysis sorely needed today." --Timothy Keller (Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City)

"An ethnographically rich and theoretically astute account of the diversity, creativity, and vibrancy of African Christianities in New York. Beyond the vivid and compelling exploration of local congregations and practices, Gornik paints an insightful and prescient portrait of the emerging face of Christianity as it enters its third millennium. This Christianity operates simultaneously at the grass roots, addressing the embodied needs and desires of those at the margins of society, and at a global level, traveling with and through transnational immigrants and hypermodern electronic media." --Manuel Vasquez (University of Florida)
