This chapter presents some concluding thoughts. It argues that Christian faith in India — at various times and in various circumstances — has been able to transcend ethnic, national, and cultural barriers. What happened among various Christian communities of India, whether they were by birth ‘pure’ (savarna), ‘colourless’ (āvarna, or Dalit), or aboriginal (adivāsi), as described within the chapters of this study, can be seen as manifold instances of indigenous discoveries and appropriations of Christianity and not merely as instances of Christian discovery and exploration of native cultures by missionaries or scholars who were alien to India.

Keywords:   Christians, Christianity, India, ethnic barriers, national barriers, cultural barriers
