Healing, Power, and Christianity in Ghana | Paul Grant

Paul Grant March 1, 2021

In this episode, Eric Carlsson interviews friend and fellow UW history alumnus Paul Grant on Paul’s new book, Healing, and Power in Ghana: Early Indigenous Expressions of Christianity (Baylor, 2020). Paul shares about his upbringing as a missionary kid, his fascination with the Gold Coast, and his efforts to try to understand both missionaries and Ghanan Christians on their own terms. The book, and this discussion, shed light on major themes in the history of global Christianity–a subject American Christians all too often ignore.
