Ethnic Patriotism and the East African Revival: A History of Dissent, C.1935-1972 by Derek R. Peterson

Ethnic Patriotism and the East African Revival shows how, in the era of African political independence, cosmopolitan Christian converts struggled with east Africas patriots over the definition of culture and community. The book traces the history of the East African Revival, an evangelical movement that spread through much of eastern and central Africa. Its converts offered a subversive reading of culture, disavowing their compatriots and disregarding their obligations to kin. They earned the ire of east Africas patriots, who worked to root people in place as inheritors of ancestral wisdom. This book casts religious conversion in a new light: not as an inward reorientation of belief, but as a political action that opened up novel paths of self-narration and unsettled the inventions of tradition.

Bruner, Jason. Since its beginnings in the s the East African Revival has had a lasting influence on the religious culture of the region. It began in Uganda and Rwanda as a lively, internal critique to the orderly and hierarchical Anglican Church of Uganda and spread into Kenya, Tanzania, Congo and Burundi.

Writing the history of the East African Revival has remained largely the prerogative of missionaries, church leaders, and historians of Christianity. These historians saw that the personal testimony was the sine qua non of the revival movement, which they often described as an offspring of British holiness evangelicalism. In these accounts, East African Revival testimonies often stood as universalized devotional accounts of Christian salvation. Derek R. Peterson explores this world through dozens of archives in Rwanda, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, and the United Kingdom, layering colonial and missionary materials alongside local church records, grey literature, and personal interviews.
