`This book is dense with information and well structured. It gives a good overview of the extraordinary variety of Christian life in India and maps out the terrain for further reseearch... any serious student of Christianity in India will find this book very valuable. It ought to be read - however unlikely it is for this to happen - by all those who are contesting the place of Christianity in contemporary India' - Journal of Contemporary Religion

`This volume, which also provides an excellent select bibliography, is therefore to be welcomed by all those interested in the study of Indian Christianity' - The Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute

Christians of India is an important study on Christian communities in India. Beginning with the authors critical scrutiny on existing literature on Christianity in India, which she feels has suffered from enormous neglect - a neglect that has extended to the study of all non-Hindu communities. The author traces the roots of this neglect to the roots of Sociology and Anthropolgy, from the moment these disciplines came to India.
