Author: Dahlfred, Karl
Description: To gain a better understanding of the forces at work in shaping Christianity in the global South, the following study will look at the nature of animism and syncretism in general, and then focus in upon Christianity in Thailand as a case study of the effect of animism upon Christian belief and practice in the global South. 8 We will then look at examples of efforts being made by both missionaries and Thai Christians to move beyond syncretism. Our study will conclude with some recommendations for further work.
