Planting Church-culture at New Calabar: Some Neglected Aspects of Missionary Enterprise in the Eastern Niger Delta, 1865-1918
This important new study criticizes the evidential bases and frameworks of the following authors who have written about New Calabar's responses to missionary Christianity (the CMS and the Niger Delta Pastorate Church) in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries: Jones, Ayandale, Horton, Ejituwu, Cookey and Tasie. One general criticism applies to all of these authors: they have all drawn faulty causal links between socioeconomic and political data and socio-religious change at New Calabar during the period under review. This work explains responses to missionary Christianity with reference to the following concepts: church-culture and cultural invasion.
