Treasure and Trials: On Publishing The Ugandan Churches and the Political Centre

18 October 2017, 16:30 - 18 October 2017, 18:30 Lightfoot Rm, Divinity Faculty, West Rd, Cambridge, CB3 9BS

Book launch of Dr Angus Crichton, (Ngoma Project) new book,
'The Ugandan Churches and the Political Centre: Cooperation, Co-option and Confrontation,' edited by Paddy Musana, Angus Crichton and Caroline Howell.
Refreshments after talk. Books available for sale.


The seminar will explore both the content and the publishing of The Ugandan Churches and the Political Centre. The book is a series of case studies from different times and locations on how the Ugandan Churches relate to the political centre, ranging from cooperation, through co-option to confrontation. These different positions are rooted in Uganda’s distinctive Christian history, where faith and politics were intertwined from the outset, and are supported by particular images and examples from the Bible. The road to publishing this title on three continents has not been without its trials, in part because of the politically sensitive nature of its content caused concerns among East African publishers.
