Anita's book is a deep and enlightening study of the spiritual experience of the Kutchi Kohli Christians of Pakistan. Producing a complex, versatile, and appealing conceptual framework for studying their inner experiences, Anita provides conceptual tools for understanding the spiritual journey and relation with the divine of indigenous people in the south of Pakistan. Relying on their own narratives, this book gives voice to the Kutchi Kohlis of Pakistan, allowing the readers to enter into their own symbolic and conceptual way to understand reality. In addition, exploring their spiritual experience, Anita shows us the creative way in which Kutchi Kohli Christians have adapted and recreated their own identity in relation to Hinduism and Islam. With most of the academia focusing on the study of indigenous people in India, this book offers a breakthrough into unexplored areas for understanding indigenous peoples and Christianity in South Asia.
