Wednesday Giveaway - African Christian Theology

Categories Theology

9789966003164This week’s giveaway, African Christian Theology, was
written to address questions that arise from the African context. 

It is intended to help students and others discover how
theology affects our minds, our hearts, and our lives. As such, it speaks not only
to Africans but to all who seek to understand and live out their faith in their
own societies.

In African Christian Theology, author Samuel Kunyihop throws
light on areas where biblical theology and the African worldview overlap, where
they diverge, and why this matters. He explores traditional African
understandings of God and how he reveals himself, the African understanding of
sin and way the Bible sees sin, and how the work of Christ can be understood in
African terms.

The treatment of Christian living focuses on matters that
are relevant to Christians in Africa and elsewhere, dealing with topics such as
blessings and curses and the role of the church as a Christian community. African Christian Theology concludes with a discussion of biblical thinking on death and the
afterlife in which it also addresses the role traditionally ascribed to African
ancestors.
