Abstract

Noel Loos interweaves his more than twenty years' personal experience with Yarrabah and other Queensland Aboriginal communities, along with the voices of Aboriginal people, missionaries, and those who sat in the pews and on subcommittees and Boards in the cities. Loos embeds the historical influences and impacts of the missions in shaping Christianity in Aboriginal Australia in the reality of frontier violence, government control, segregation and neglect.
