MBB Christians in North Africa (Tunis)

Dear Colleagues,
Alex Miller has recently publish an article on contemporary Christians in Tunis. Here is the abstract of the article:
In the last few decades a substantial number of Tunisians have converted to Christianity. This article seeks to better understand their context and based on two weeks of fieldwork in Tunis in the summer of 2014, this article outlines the history of three of the principal churches in the city—one Catholic, one Anglican, and one Reformed—describes some facets of their worship and spiritual life, and then, based on interviews with church leaders and members, explores key challenges facing the churches. Utilizing the framework of Shoki Coe’s contextual theology, the findings are then analyzed in order to better understand the priorities, aspirations and ministry strategies of the local churches.
If you know anyone interested in Christianity in North Africa today, please do share this resource with them.
The article can be downloaded from the Pharos Journal's site:
