Product Description

This books deals with an apparent separation observed between spirituality and morality in West African Christianity. It explains a paradox in an African society where an exuberant Christian mission and spirituality flourishes alongside social issues, which are typically exacerbated by widespread corruption in public life. Through doctoral research Lord Elorm-Donkor has carefully examined the Deliverance Theology of Ghanaian Pentecostals and explains that although it is regarded generally as a positive appropriation of an African religious heritage into Christianity, it is done without an appropriate understanding of the Akan traditional moral scheme and creates an epistemological crisis for Christian moral reasoning and practice.
