about

The Republic of Suriname, located in northern South America has a rich and diverse history going back several centuries. This has seen the introduction of Christianity and the establishment and creation of many church denominations. To date, major theological works have failed to provide correct, balanced and informative dialogue on the history of Christianity and its developments in Suriname. In response to the lack of information available to the academic world this publication aims to provide a survey of the history, a summary of the works of theologians and a guide to reliable sources about Christianity in Suriname. Through overviewing the history of the major denominations in Suriname and focusing on only some major issues surrounding Christianity the author delivers a unique single volume for both the general reader and a starting point for further research.

Franklin Jabini is the Head of the Postgraduate School of the South African Theological Seminary (SATS). He serves the Evangelical School of Theology in Suriname (EST) and the Caribbean College of the Bible International in Trinidad (CCBI) in di erent capacities. Since 1988, he has been a full-time worker with the Plymouth Brethren.

Editorial Reviews

"Considering that two-thirds of world Christianity is now in Asia, Africa, Latin America and Oceania, local and regional histories of Churches and missions are increasingly signi cant and urgently needed. Dr Frank Jabini o ers the world Church an invaluable contribution with this history of Church, mission and theologians of Suriname. Dr Jabini's impressive primary documentation and encyclopaedic treatment seeks to set the record straight concerning Christianity in Suriname."Dr Charles E van EngenArthur F Glasser Professor of Biblical Theology of Mission Fuller Seminary's School of World Mission
