Although it’s been a while since I first read his book (1st ed.) I don’t remember it being anti-western; I do recall him being amused at how conservative these 3rd world Christians were however, and how much that will clash with our “enlightened” western clergy.
Maybe they’ll evangelize us and return us to God’s Word...
I know that most of my father’s Episcopalian congregation deserted its perverted doctrine for a Ugandan based Anglican Church. They left an old established church, bought a new sanctuary and moved en masse. I have been a few times and they seem like some of the most enthusiastic Christians I have ever seen!
