Abstract

426 STUDIES IN WORLD CHRISTIANIT Y studies by Damaris Parsitau (Kenya), Lovemore Ndlovu (Zimbabwe), George Wilkes (Israel) and Sipco Vellenga (The Netherlands) add to the richness of the volume. Regrettably, the text does not include a concluding chapter. This might not be crucial here since the editors’ introduction properly described the contributions. However, the connections between the contributions could be given more attention in a synthesis chapter for further research and practice. For example, in ‘Researching Religion and Violence’, Corey Williams underscores the importance of qualitative social-scientific methods (for example, fieldwork guided by phenomen- ological principles) in the research on militant religio-political groups. Given the limited feasibility of fieldwork in some conflict contexts, what other epistemological and methodological approaches should be considered? Does the ‘Globalized Cybersphere’ discussed by Najimdeen Bakare in chapter 4 constitute a major ‘field’ for social scientists, given the strong presence of believers and militant groups in the ‘virtual world’? This omission notwithstanding, the collection deepens our understanding of the manifest and complex relationship between religion and conflict in the contemporary world.
