Product Description

In Reinventing Christianity, the first comprehensive survey of Christian theology in Africa to appear in English, John Parratt provides a critical yet sympathetic examination of the new ways of doing theology that have recently emerged from within the African Church. Following an introduction that charts the growth and development of African theology, Parratt examines the differing theological assumptions and methodologies throughout the continent. He also shows how Africans are rethinking the central dogmas of the Christian faith -- Scripture, God, christology, the church, and eschatology -- and evaluates Africa's politcal theologies, giving special attention to theological approches to African socialism and to South African black theology. The final chapter exposes some of the problematic issues that can provide a framework for wider ecumenical theological debate.
