      Description
      Though claiming to act from and for "the love of Jesus," Christianity has brought suffering and destruction to individuals, communities and cultures in almost every region of the world. This collection of papers by Indian and forign scholars, which spans two millennia and includes Europe, America, Asia and Australia, does not focus on Christianity's teachings or theology, but on its actual expressions in the world. Just as histories of colonialism have been largely written by the colonial powers, in effect erasing the testimony of the colonized, most histories of Christianity - and in India, all of them - have adopted a Christian standpoint as a matter of course. This book endeavours to reverse the perspective and asserts the right of the countless victims of Christianity to be remembered, and, when still possible, to be heard. The book's 45 essays do not demonize Christianity; rather, they bear witness in memory of the millions it demonized and martyred for no fault of theirs. And they hold a lesson for the surviving vulnerable cultures and communities in India and elsewhere.
