“In this volume, Festo Mkenda, SJ, a leading voice in studies on the Society of Jesus in Africa, turns his attention to the little-known history of the Jesuit presence in modern Ethiopia. Marking the recent seventy-fifth anniversary of the arrival of a small group of Canadian Jesuits in 1945—the first sus tained presence in over three hundred years—the book outlines the origins and modern history of the Jesuits in Ethiopia. Bringing to life their story in vivid detail, it will be of interest both inside Ethiopia and its diaspora, as well as to all of those interested in Africa and the Church today.”
