Product Description

African Christian Theology addresses foundational theological questions from an African perspective.

Christian theology evolves out of questions that are asked in a particular situation about how the Bible speaks to that situation. African Christian Theology addresses questions theological questions from the perspective of an African context.

It is intended to help readers discover how theology affects and shapes our minds, our hearts, and our lives. As such, it speaks not only to Africans but to all who seek to understand and live out their faith in their own societies.

Theologian Samuel Kunyihop understands both biblical theology and the African worldview and throws light on areas where they overlap, where they diverge, and why this matters. He explores traditional African understandings of God and how he reveals himself, the African understanding of sin and way the Bible sees sin, and how the work of Christ can be understood in African terms.

The treatment of Christian living focuses on matters that are relevant to Christians in Africa and elsewhere, dealing with topics such as blessings and curses and the role of the church as a Christian community. The book concludes with a discussion of biblical thinking on death and the afterlife in which it also addresses the role traditionally ascribed to African ancestors.
