Blantyre Mission Stories of its Beginning

by Harry Kambwiri Matecheta

When he was ordained in 1911, the Reverend Harry Kambwiri Matecheta became the first Malawian Presbyterian minister. Forty years later when he published Blantyre Mission: Nkhani za Chiyambi Chake (Hetherwick Press, 1951), he became Malawi's first church historian. Going beyond recounting facts, he offered his own distinctive analysis, which remains highly relevant to church and nation today. Thokozani Chilembwe and Todd Statham's beautifully prepared new edition makes this seminal text available to all who wish to expand their understanding of Malawi's history.
