Book Launch: God’s Feet or the Mission’s Pack Donkey. Evangelists of Namibia

July 4, 2023 @ 18:00 - 20:00

Basler Afrika Bibliographien invites to the book launch of “God’s Feet or the Mission’s Pack Donkey. Evangelists of Namibia” by Hans-Martin Milk. The event is presented by the Jane Katjavivi Archives Restoration Project.


African evangelists played a crucial but mostly overlooked role in shaping the spiritual and social networks that transformed indigenous communities in Namibia from the early nineteenth century. Drawing on a wide range of German, Namibian and South African archival sources and supplemented with a large number of interviews and photos, the book interweaves mission and church history between 1820 and 1990 with a biographical approach. As such, the histories of many Namibian families, notably those connected to the Rhenish Mission Society/ELK/ELCRN, are brought to life.


The author Hans-Martin Milk and historians and archivists Wolfram Hartmann and Werner Hillebrecht will introduce the book and ELCRN‘s mission and church archives project.



Venue: ELCRN‘s Friedenskirche, 6 Church Street, parking entrance Konrad Street, Windhoek.

Date and time: Tuesday 4 July 2023, 6.00 pm
