Review by Simon Aihiokhai forthcoming.


Competing for Caesar brings together, for the first time, key scholars working on various issues related to religion and public life in Zambia. They explore the interplay between religion and politics in Zambian society and how these religions manage and negotiate their identities in public life. This book analyzes recent religious dynamics in the nation's political life, and considers what constructive role religion could play to promote an alternative political vision to subvert neo-colonialism. Competing for Caesar carries forward a unique commitment on the part of Fortress Press to engage with the challenges and opportunities of Christianity in the Global South. The book will be of interest to scholars, professors, and students in a wide range of fields.
