The aim of this article is to pass on a few suggestions for making the History of the Catholic Church in Zambia more accessible locally, and more acceptable internationally. By improving its methodology, this History can make a real contribution to the development of the history of Christianity in Africa in the context of African history. The article deals with methodological questions and offers some suggestions. It uses the text of this History only in a very limited way in as far as it serves its methodological aim. Yet, I hope that the few references to the text will whet the appetite of the reader to get to know the whole content of this History, since that is remarkably informative and very readable.
