In Jesus and Pocahontas, Howard A. Snyder presents an alternative approach to the traditional story of the success of Christian settlement and mission in Jamestown, Virginia. This alternative approach presents an account of the life and conversion of Pocahontas which is respectful both of the early Jamestown and Native American accounts. Snyder presents a more complex story than the simple Pilgrim versus Native American theme popularised by past novels. Here, characters who are described are as unpredictable as they are predictable, and this account challenges not only the myth of Pocahontas itself but also its impact on historical, theological and missional narratives from the time of the first Jamestown settlements. Jesus and Pocahontas recounts the life of Pocahontas from her first sighting of English colonists when she was around ten years old, through her love affair with and marriage to John Rolfe and her conversion to the Christian faith and life in England . Woven into each part of this account are explanations of the many different ways in which this story influences our current perception of gospel, mission and nationhood.

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
