Christianity and African Traditional Religion

Two Realities of a Different Kind

by Bregje de Kok

This book describes itself as: ‘a cultural, psychological study of the way Christian Malawians account for their involvement in African traditional religion’. It is a qualitative study of how Christians manage to be at the same time involved in African traditional religions, of which the Christian church, on the whole, disapproves. It lends insight into the ways in which individuals enact two different religions in their daily lives, focusing particularly on religious practices. It further aims to adopt a position of religious pluralism, representing the voices and perspectives of the peoples studied.
