Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Review of the hardback: '… Professor Williams gives a fasinating and most learned account of a community, or rather several communities, in transition.' Asian Affairs

Review of the hardback: ' … Christian Pluralism is an impressive and wide-ranging book written by an experienced and visionary elder-statesman deeply concerned not just about Indian Christians but about the role that Indian Christians can play in shaping the future of American Christianity … the book should be required reading for all who seek to lead Indian churches into the future.' Souvenir for the Family Conference of the Mar Thoma Church
