Three Days in the Life of an African Christian Villager

  • By Jim Harries
$4.99
($7.00)
Three Days in the Life of an African Christian Villager While sitting reflectively watching the smoke emerging from his wife's kitchen, this African villager recounts his thoughts and observations on just three days of village life. On Friday, his boss tries to deal with a fall in profit margins of the company he works for. Saturday's account explains some of the intrigues surrounding just another village funeral. Village Christianity becomes the focus of Sunday. Read this intriguing little diary, a close literal translation from an original in Dholuo (of western Kenya), to begin to acquire fascinating insights into contemporary village life as an African Christian man. This book is suitable to be used as a part of courses on missions, African Christianity and culture, development and intercultural communication at undergraduate and graduate levels. Jim Harries (PhD) was motivated by his Christian faith, to serve the poor in Africa. Since living in Zambia then Kenya from 1988 to date, he has been experiencing a different world. His upbringing in the UK had not prepared him for what he found. Nowadays Jim's primary ministry with local people in Africa is Bible teaching. See also Jim's recent novel, entitled African Heartbeat: and a vulnerable fool.
