"It is a remarkable work. Probably the most focussed on a critical examination of my theories on missionary discourse in Africa. Your rendering of my ideas is almost perfect."

Prof. V. Y. Mudimbe, Duke University

"This study of V. Y. Mudimbe's theories of missionary discourse in Africa makes an important contribution to research in the area of mission and colonial studies. The author not only successfully demythologises the missionary project but also provides the conceptual tools for the construction of the content of a post-missionary Christianity."

Prof. Peter B. Clarke, King's College, University of London

F. W. Stenger, a member of the Missionaries of Africa [White Fathers], received his Ph. D. from the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. He is lecturer at Tangaza College, Catholic University of East Africa in Nairobi, Kenya.
