Christian attitudes to Islam Subtitle: A comparative study of the work of S.A. Crowther, E.W. Blyden and W.R.S. Miller in West Africa

Abstract: The purpose of the study is to compare the attitudes to Islamof Samuel Crowther, Edward Blyden, and Walter Miller in the lightof their work in West Africa. Their careers overlapped to someextent. Crowther was active from 1841-1891, Blyden from 1851-1912,Miller from 1897-1952.Each man was involved in missionary activity. For Crowtherand Miller this was life-long. In Blyden's case, the break camein 1886, when he resigned as a Presbyterian minister, to becomewhat he called 'a minister of Truth 1 . After this date his careerbecame more controversial. Like the other two, he continued tobe interested in the theory and practice of mission among Muslimsand in a critical comparison of Christianity and Islam, as religioussystems which could secure liberation for Africans from all formsof slavery, whether physical, cultural or spiritual.The study consists of nine chapters which provide asystematic analysis of the central theme. The introductorysection discusses purpose, method and scope. Chapter one consistsof an analysis of Christian attitudes to Islam, which serves as thebasis for a comparison of the attitudes of Crowther, Blyden aridMiller in the final chapter. The second chapter deals with thenineteenth century background to the work of the three men. Thefollowing chapters deal, successively, with the life and attitude toIslam of each man. The chapters on attitudes are divided,thematically, in order to discuss the various aspects moresystematically. The concluding chapter contains a comparativeassessment. Two appendices (concerned vrith Blyden and Miller,respectively), a full list of sources, and a bibliography, completethe study.
