Product Description

The hope and purpose of this book is threefold; that the church in Africa continue to affirm the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ; that the Church in Africa learn afresh to indigenize itself to the point that Christanity truly becomes an African religion; and that preaching in Africa increasingly use African historical, cultural, tranditional religious concepts, imagery, and idiom to communicate the gospel more effectively in the new millennium.

Publisher's Description

The thesis of this book is threefold: (1) that the Church in Africa continues to affirm the preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ; (2) that the Church in Africa learns afresh to indigenize itself to the point that Christianity truly becomes an African religion; and (3) that preaching in Africa needs to increasingly use African historical, cultural, traditional-religious concepts, imagery, and idiom (rather than missionary-given Western forms) in order to communicate the gospel more effectively in the new millennium.

Kurewa invites the African Church to take a closer look at African culture as God-given, rather than continuing to preach, worship, sing, and counsel as if imitating Western missionaries. Kurewa urges the African Church to claim its own culture with pride and integrity.  He gives examples on how specific customs can be integrated into Christian life, worship, and preaching.

Author Bio

John Wesley Zwomunondiita Kurewa is Vice-Chancellor and E. Stanley Jones Professor of Evangelism at Africa University. He has served as Secretary to the Parliament of Zimbabwe.
