Jason Bruner

Jason Bruner is a scholar of religion with a particular interest in the histories of Christian missions, European imperialism, and the growth of Christianity in Sub-Saharan Africa in the 19th and 20th centuries. His first book, “Living Salvation in the East African Revival in Uganda” (University of Rochester Press, 2017), is a cultural history of a Christian revival movement in Uganda from the early 1930s to the mid 1950s. He is currently working on a second book, titled “A Global War on Christians? History, Evidence, and Analysis,” for which he received a research grant from the Louisville Institute. This book will provide a genealogy of American Christian discourses of global religious violence, giving particular attention to how the theme of religious persecution has come to frame American perceptions of Christianity worldwide.
