Evangelical Christianity and Democracy in Asia

This chapter examines the effects of evangelical Christianity on Indian politics, and democracy in particular. It focuses on one underdeveloped area of Gujarat state: the Dangs, a largely inaccessible forest area inhabited by adivasis, or tribal peoples, where a substantial fraction of the inhabitants have reportedly embraced evangelical Christianity to a greater or lesser degree since Christian teaching first came to the region about thirty years ago. The chapter traces the trajectory of a particular Christian organization's involvement with tribal communities since 1976.

Keywords:   evangelical Christianity, tribal India, Indian politics, democracy, Gujarat, Christian workers
