The Oxford Encyclopaedia of South Asian Christianity covers the story of Christianity in India and its neighbouring South Asian countries spread over almost 2000 years. An essay on each South Asian country opens a window to the history, particularly the Christian component, of that country from the beginning up to the present. In the case of India, there are essays on regions alongside entries on each of the states and several important cities.
Alphabetically arranged, the cross-references and brief bibliographical entries offer scholars suggestions for further research. Additionally, the short bibliographies included at the end of most entries offer an invitation to further exploration. Accessible, authoritative, and up-to-date, this first-of-its-kind reference work on South Asian Christianity will serve as a basic reference tool for secular students and scholars, researchers, histotians, Christian laity, church leaders, pastors, and missionaries.
