Bishop Samuel Crowther was the first African bishop ordained by the Church Missionary Society in 1943. This chapter discusses Christian life during this age. Aspects covered are ‘Black Europeans’ (a reference to the fact that many Africans were more English than the English); Crowther and the Niger Diocese; Yoruba Christianity; the South African predicament of too many white missionaries; Buganda—conversion, martyrdom, and civil war in the 1880s; revival in the ancient kingdom of Kongo; and the Niger purge.
