Orthodox reformers, Protestants from Eritrea and
Wollega moving to the capital, and European
missions asked by the Imperial Government to open
educational and medical institutions in town,
marked the beginning of Evangelical Christianity in
Addis Ababa. After the Italian occupation church
leaders of the capital worked for the unity of all
Ethiopian Evangelicals and formed the Addis Ababa
Synod. The author describes responses of the big
churches to urban needs in the 1970’s and lists
activities and sufferings of Christians under the
Marxist Derg Regime.
