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.
