A Theology of Public and Political Engagement

by Felix Chimera Nyika, Mzee Hermann Y. Mvula, Kenneth R. Ross

The third annual conference of the Theological Society of Malawi was held at the Bing International Conference Centre in Lilongwe from 30 August to 1 September 2022. It was honoured by the presence of His Excellency Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera, President of Malawi, who launched the Society. The conference issued a rousing call for theologians to be ready to engage the public and political issues of the day. The authors who have contributed to this volume, writing from a variety of perspectives, demonstrate how this can be done.
