Title: Book review: history of the Church of the Nazarene in Trinidad and Tobago
Author: Teelucksingh, Jerome
Abstract: The book is an account of the educational and spiritual endeavours of the Church of the Nazarene during its 82 years of existence in Trinidad and Tobago. In the review of Gelien Matthews’s book, I commented on the strengths of the publication. The author provides scholarly insight into the operation and organization of a vibrant Christian denomination. The study will certainly be of value to persons interested in the local history of Trinidad and Tobago. Matthews’s lucid writing style will enable anyone to read and appreciate the mission of the Nazarene Church in Trinidad and Tobago. I have also focused on her use of sources. The footnotes and bibliography reveal diverse sources, such as journals, websites, interviews, and the Church’s manuals and monographs. The book’s seven chapters explore various aspects of the Church of the Nazarene including its global mission, the role of the District Superintendent and the functioning of District Boards and Auxiliaries. The historical snapshots will provide the reader with an insight into both the contributions and challenges of the Nazarene Church.
