Christianity in India is nearly two millennia old. Along with Hinduism and other prominent minority religions such as Islam, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism, it has become a part of the religious heritage of India, which is known for its religiosity and religious diversity. Therefore, the History of Christianity in India is a part of the History of this land. So also, the History of the Christian community is an aspect of the general history of the people of this country.This book deals with the History of Christianity in Bihar and Jharkhand till the year of Indian Independence, in 1947, based on a detailed description of Christian Missions established by different Missionary Organizations during the period. It is a Mission-oriented History with focus on the missionaries. This scholarly study highlights the benign presence of hundreds of dedicated missionaries and their heroic work among the poor, the marginalized and the sick wherever they operated, effecting significant transformation in the Christian community in particular, and the wider ambient society, in general.This book is the fulfillment of a dream of Prof. Prem Chand Horo, to publish his thesis in book form, highlighting the contribution of the Christian Missions toward nation building. The efforts of Dr. Fr. Jose Kalapura further adds to the scholarly contents by his able editing, checking the facts and rectifying any methodological drawbacks, without altering the content of the research, besides adding an informative Appendix on the Missions and a suitable Introduction giving an overview, thus making it relevant, readable for students, researchers and general readers alike.Printed Pages: 338.
