Honoring historian Robert Eric Frykenberg, the essays in this collection avoid the pitfall of Eurocentric, ?top down? historiographies and instead adopt and adapt Frykenberg?s own Indocentric, ?bottom up? approach, thus accentuating indigenous agency in the emergence of Christianity as an Indian religion. / Contributors: Peter B. Andersen, Michael Bergunder, Judith M. Brown, John B. Carman, Gunnel Cederl?f, Daniel Jeyaraj, Chandra Mallampalli, Geoffrey A. Oddie, Avril A. Powell, Rosemary Seton, Wilbert R. Shenk, Martha Lund Smalley, Brian Stanley, Richard Fox Young.
