Alive in Christ is a fascinating collection of well-editied
articles which traces the process of reflection and action
during and after the 1998 Synod for Oceania. While other
books treat the synods of Africa and Asia in their entirely
(Orbis, 1996 and 2002), this work focuses on the church in
Papua New Guinea (PNG), one of the four Episcopal
conferences of Oceania.

Highlands of Papua New Guinea


Published: 2005
Author: Neville Bartle
Title: Death, Witchcraft And The Spirit World In The Highlands of Papua New Guinea
Format: PDF (Book)
Size: 18MB
USD$ 15

Death, Witchcraft and the Spirit World explores the spiritual beliefs and
practices of three areas in Papua New Guinea. It goes further than a
straight ethnography, however, because Bartleuses this information
to reflect on contextualising theology and the issues it raises.
An exciting volume dealing with contemporary cultural and theological
issues.

No. 26 - Grace and Reciprocity: Missiological Studies

Published: 2002
Author: Theodore Ahrens
Title: Grace And Reciprocity: Missiological Studies
Format: PDF (Book)
Size: 19.78MB
USD$ 15

What have Papua New Guineans made of the Gospel of Christ?”
This is the key question around which Ahrens articles can be read.
The work gathered here was written over a 28-year period, in various
locations, not only in PNG itself. It is the task of the missiologist
to reflect on how the Christ event has impacted the local stories
of people. “Dialogue is at first attempted, for better or for worse,
by missionaries, but which now needs to be continued by national
Christians. God’s grace is always here, how are people reciprocating?
God becomes flesh in culture.”

No. 25 - Land and Churches in Melanesia: Issues and Contexts

Published: 2001
Editor: Michael Rynkiewich
Title: Land And Churches In Melanesia: Issues and Contexts
Format: PDF (Book)
Size: 19.68MB
USD$ 15

This is the first of two volumes dealing with land and churches
in Melanesia. It comes to grips with some of the main issues
around land, ownership and the use of land in Melanesia. It is
focused on Papua New Guineans, but extends to other Melanesian
peoples. Simply put, land in Melanesian cultures - in spite of
modernisation - is never simply a commodity. Land forms part
of the social fabric in the minds and hearts of Melanesians, and
land issues are varied, involved and complicated. Previously, little
had been written concerning the role of the churches and land matters;
this volume traces the history, the philosophy and the role of the
churches in land dealings in PNG. The second volume is Point No.27.
