Product Description

This book is the fruit of many years of collecting the proverbs and wisdom sayings that are both paradigmatic expressions of traditional African self-understanding and the best place to begin a study of African Christian theology. Fathers Joseph Healy and Donald Sybertz make a major contribution to articulating a full blown African theology, a project that only Africans, ultimately, can do for themselves. Towards an African Narrative Theology explores how proverbs, stories, and wisdom sayings reveal the shape of Christianity's inculturation in Africa and alert readers to the need to open minds and hearts to new ways of looking at the Christian mysteries.
