Product Description

1. Church of England – Missions – Malaysia – Sarawak – History 2. Anglican Communion – Missions – Malaysia – Sarawak – History 3. Christianity – Malaysia – Sarawak 4. Iban (Bornean people) – Religion 5. Iban (Bornean people) – Malaysia – Sarawak. This book tells a fascinating story of encounter between Christianity and the Iban of Sarawak, who are now one of the most Christianised peoples in Asia. Peter Varney meticulously charts Iban responses to Christianity during Brooke and colonial rule from 1848 to 1968 showing how local catechists and teachers played a central role in bringing Christianity to their own people. The story of how faith and culture engage each other will be of huge interest to Southeast Asian Christians, and to academics in historical and social science disciplines.
