New PDF release: African Christology: Jesus in Post-Missionary African

By Clifton R. Clarke,Allan Anderson

The measure to which Christianity has been embraced by means of Africa south of the Sahara has been a phenomenon that has resulted in a better exam of the mutual influence of the Christian religion and African tradition. a vital query during this carrying on with debate is how African Christians can include a religion, which got here to them through Europe and North the USA, in a manner that's real to the Bible and while be the faith of African humans. for lots of, the African Indigenous church buildings epitomize this rigidity among religion and tradition. on the middle of this debate lies Jesus Christ. How are Africans in post-missionary Africa to talk of Christ in a manner that's really significant to the African and during the worldview that's their own?

Clarke questions the theological axis on which Christology in Africa has revolved and upon which Christological discourse has been built. He advocates a re-evaluation of the language and symbolism, or orality, as a way of articulating who Jesus is for Africans in ways in which are compatible to their context and worldview.

Drawing upon a large-scale questionnaire survey, different qualitative study tools, and theologians and researchers of African religions and tradition, Clarke represents a grassroots viewpoint of how Christ is skilled in Akan African Indigenous church buildings in Ghana.

"Chafing for too lengthy lower than the yoke of a Western Christianity that used to be inappropriate to their context, African Spirit church buildings have emerged with a energetic, inculturated religion pitched on the wavelength of African desire. The biblical Christ they joyfully worship resembles, thinks like, and speaks like an African. African Christology provides this important voice to the Christological dialog, increasing and enriching it with specified, illuminating insights and views. A wanted contribution to theological scholarship and international Christianity!"
