Abstract: A historical-ecclesiological study of the church in Uganda with particular reference to post-independence Uganda, 1962-1992.                                  Historically, studies of the church in Africa have tended to focus on church history or church-state relations, but in this publication David Zac Niringiye presents a study of the Church of Uganda focused on its ecclesiology. Niringiye examines several formative periods for the Church of Uganda during concurrent chronological political eras characterized by varying degrees of socio-political turbulence, highlighting how the social context impacted the church's self-expression. The author's methodology and insight sets this work apart as an excellent reflection on the Ugandan church and brings scholarly attention to previously ignored topics that hold great value to society, the church, and the academic community globally.

About the Author: The Rt. Rev. Dr. David Zac Niringiye (PhD, Edinburgh) is the retired assistant bishop of the diocese of Kampala, Church of Uganda. Currently a fellow in the Faculty of Social Sciences at Uganda Christian University, he has a distinguished career as a theologian, mission leader, pastor, HIV and AIDS activist, and organizational development consultant. Called "the foremost evangelical Christian thinker/theologian today," Niringiye teaches at churches and conferences in Africa, Europe and North American while continuing his work of peace and social-political justice in Uganda. Today, he is also a member of the “Black Monday Movement”. This initiative combats corruption and embezzlement in Uganda.
