In this article the author shows how the arrival of Christianity in Cameroon is portrayed in the work of Cameroonian writer KenjoJumbam. Writing some time after independence, Jumbam's work (especially The White man of God) exhibits a balanced valuation of Christian missionary work in contrast to other Cameroonian authors writing around the time of independence who displayed a more negative valuation of Christianity as a result of anti-colonialist feelings. In Jumbam's portrayal of the work of Christian missionaries the issue of inculturation of Christianity in indigenous culture is also raised.
