This book is one of two volumes on Preaching in the African Context. For both seasoned preachers and beginners, including students in seminaries, Bible colleges, and universities, this first volume explores Why We Preach and the principles of contextual preaching in Africa. Nhiwatiwa draws on his experience as a pastor and bishop, as well as his research as a lecturer, in demonstrating that contextual preaching serves as the most appropriate way of communicating the gospel in Africa. By tapping into African cultural modes of communication, preachers can engage the minds and touch the hearts of the people in effective ways. Read these volumes to see why contextual preaching is so urgent for meeting the ministry challenge in Africa today and how it can open new horizons for the proclamation of the gospel.
