Description

The Handbook of Popular Spiritual Movements in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia provides a reference for interpreting contemporary Christian life and practice through the contributions of over forty local and international theologians, historians, theological educators, social scientists, artists, composers and pastors. Their interpretative essays, case studies and examples of image and music for worship, help us sense and understand the evolving movements of aspiration, thought and practice that are shaping present-day Christianity in Asia.
