              With this book, Ole Kirchheiner makes a significant contribution to the limited body of research available about the church in Nepal--and tells one of the most fascinating stories of modern mission history. Working from the case study of Asha Church, a rural church at the center ...of the country whose congregants have begun moving into the urban areas, he offers an intriguing look at how recent converts have become genuine followers of Christ while retaining their Nepali identity. This work deserves a wide readership and will hopefully stimulate further research on the important questions raised.

              This book explores and analyzes funerary-rite struggles in a nation where Christianity is a comparatively recent phenomenon and where many families have Christian and Hindu, Buddhist and Tradionalist (kiranti) members and go through traumatic experiences at the death of their fam...ily members. The context of mixed affiliation raises questions of social, psychological, and religious identity for Christian converts. The author has used an applied theological approach to explore and analyze the findings in order to address the issue of funerary rites with which the Nepalese church is struggling.
