Classic Expose of Communism and Liberation Theology


Back in Print

Out of Africa

Rev. Arthur Lewis was a graduate of Oxford University where he trained under Professor C.S. Lewis. Ordained at the youngest possible age, Arthur Lewis joined the Church of England's University Mission to Central Africa and in 1947 began his half century of missionary service on this continent.

Pioneer Missionary

Rev. Arthur Lewis spent 11 years serving at various Mission stations in Tanganyika and on the islands of Zanzibar and Pemba. He quickly learned the local language, Swahili. In 1958, Arthur Lewis married Gladys and moved to Rhodesia. For the next 21 years, the Lewis' planted churches and worked amongst the Shona people. During 9 years at St. Peters Mission, Mandea, Arthur Lewis planted 14 congregations.


It was Rev. Arthur Lewis who first exposed the insidious spread of liberation theology and the devious work of the World Council of Churches in using church funds to advance communist terrorist movements. His book, Christian Terror, created a sensation as it documented how missionaries, pastors and other Christians were being brutally murdered in Rhodesia by Robert Mugabe's ZANU terrorists and Joshua Nkomo's ZAPU. These terrorists were the recipients of generous World Council of Churches funding. As a result even Readers Digest picked up the scandalous story and the Salvation Army and Baptists withdrew from membership with the WCC in protest.

Christian Civilization at Risk

To help mobilise prayer and action on behalf of Christians suffering on the frontline of the battle for Christian civilisation, against the advance of Soviet and Red Chinese backed communism, Rev. Arthur Lewis launched the Rhodesia Christian Group. His regular RCG letters provided a unique insight into the war on Rhodesia and the strategies being employed by the Marxists to destroy this vibrant Christian civilisation.


Arthur Lewis' courage in using his writing and speaking skills to expose the duplicity and treachery of the liberation theologians and the World Council of Churches made him a major voice for Rhodesia. In 1976, he was elected to the Rhodesia Senate and the Church of England granted him temporary leave to accept this responsibility.

Christian Action

After the betrayal of Rhodesia in 1980, the Lewis' moved to South Africa and he was assigned to a congregation in Phalaborwa. Rev. Arthur Lewis was also a Founder member of United Christian Action, which later became the Christian Action Network. For over 27 years, Rev. Arthur Lewis was an Honorary Member of the Board of Frontline Fellowship frequently communicating, encouraging, correcting, rebuking and advising as to how our Mission could be more effective in serving suffering Christians and advancing the Kingdom of God in Africa.


In 1987, after a half century of missionary service in Africa, the Lewis' retired to England. There Rev. Lewis assisted in the Parish of St. Alphege and continued to write for the Rhodesian Christian Group. Arthur Lewis has many spiritual children throughout Africa and we praise God that, despite the treachery of politicians, God's work is advancing, God's people are standing firm and the Church of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is growing in both depth and extent throughout southern and central Africa.

Crisis in Zimbabwe

However, the same villains responsible for the terror documented in this book remain in power in Zimbabwe at the date of this re-publishing of the new edition of Christian Terror.

"Remember the prisoners as if chained with them - those who are mistreated since you yourselves are in the body also." Hebrews 13:3
