langham.jpgLangham is one ot the major publishers providing today fresh quality content from skilled African authors.

Social science researchers would greatly benefit from paying closer attention to the many good books released each year, including this one: written by Eraston Kambale Kighoma  from a Christian scholarly point of view, this missiology study is worth reading.

It provides a deep insight into the way Baptist churches in Congo dealt with the war in Eastern Congo between 1990 and 2011.

French Baptist History: Historical slides and Thematic slides

Baptistes emprisonnés au XIXe siècle.jpgAs you already know, I did study French Baptist history for my Ph.D (defended in Sorbonne EPHE in 1998).  I've decided to review (and improve) two old Powerpoint presentations.

The first one is historical and chronological. It explains the four steps of French Baptist implantation, from 1800s to 1950s.

The second one is a thematic presentation, using both sociology and history, in order to highlight the social distinctives of Baptist churches (and individuals) in French society.

These two slideshows are in French. They may require some effort to be read and understood but the effort is worth it!

The first slideshow can be seen here : Link to historical slides

The second slideshow can be seen here : Link to thematic slides
