Summary:
Examining the multifaceted nature of Christianity in Fiji, My God, My Land reveals the deeply complex and often paradoxical dynamics and tensions between the processes of change and continuity within the everyday lives of the inhabitants. It will be of interest not only to anthropologists of Oceania, but also to social scientists working in the field of religion, representation, tradition and social change.
