Christianity, the papacy, and mission in Africa by Richard Gray( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard Gray, who died in 2005, was a pioneer in the study of African history, focusing in particular, in his later years, on the religious history of the continent. For over twenty years he served on the Pontifical Committee of Historical Sciences and worked on a comprehensive study of the papacy and Africa. In undertaking this work he originally assumed that the critical initiatives came from within Catholic Europe or its missionaries. He soon discovered, however, that the initiatives came from African Christians: from Ethiopia, its Christian tradition stretching further than many parts of northern Europe; from Kongo, the first African kingdom to respond with a spontaneous enthusiasm to the Portuguese proclamation of the Gospel; from appeals to Rome by African Catholics who were attempting to reconcile their needs and their culture with the Christian laws brought to them by missionaries; and finally by slaves of African origin from the New World who were protesting against the appalling discrepancy between Christian principles and the practice of slave traders and owners. With Gray s work left unfinished, Lamin Sanneh, one of the leading scholars of World Christianity, has assembled the published essays which underlay this intended study. The result is an enduring contribution to the study of Africa, mission, and World Christianity."--Publisher's description

The Cambridge history of Africa by Roland Anthony Oliver( Book )

5 editions published between 1975 and 2000 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The five and a half centuries described in this volume were those in which Iron Age cultures passed from their early and experimental phases into stages of maturity characterized by long-distance trade and complex, many-tiered political systems. In Egypt and North Africa it was a period of religious and cultural consolidation when the Arabic language and the faith of Islam were adopted by the majority of the indigenous Copts and Berbers. In the sub-Saharan Savanna it was a period rather of penetration when Muslim merchants and clerics built up small but significant minorities of Negro African converts. Muslim migrants conquered the Nilotic Sudan, encircled Christian Ethiopia and settled the coastline of eastern Africa. But throughout the period African states, large and small, were strong enough, relatively, to control their visitors from the outside world. The main significance of the outsiders, whether Muslim or Christian, was as literate observers of the African scene

Canadian Wheat Board value-added enhancement study by W. Hartley Furtan( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Canadian Wheat Board is the sole supplier of wheat, durum, and malting barley to millers and maltsters in Canada. Past Board/industry relationships have worked well, but a number of new industries have developed that may work better if not under Board control. This report presents the results and recommendations of a study conducted to develop ways in which the Board could better facilitate value-added processing in Canada. It reviews the state of the value-added grain processing industry, including flour millers, small millers and grain processors, maltsters, the organic food industry, and industrial buyers of Board-supplied grains. It also examines the attitudes of these sectors toward, and problems with, Board policies. The recommendations relate to such matters as communication, pooled price transparency, Board investments, exemptions from Board control, and market development programs
