Facets of African Christian Theology in the 21st Century

edited by Mzee Hermann Yokoniah Mvula , Kenneth R. Ross

Under the umbrella of the Theological Society of Malawi, this volume assembles the insights of some original thinkers who offer fresh perspectives on African Christian Theology as it advances into the 2Ist century. They approach this multi-faceted topic from a variety of angles so that its different features can be more clearly seen - rather in the way that a jeweller inspects a beautiful diamond by assessing its different facets. This will be a stimulating volume for those on the cutting edge of the development of African Christian Theology.

"This book is groundbreaking in its effort, ambitious in its reach, and earnest in its depth. Its deep understanding of Malawian issues is evident, but it also reflects on continental themes. Readers will not only learn a thing or two about theological discourses taking place in Malawi. They will also be shown a whole world of African Christian theological thought going back many centuries. All scholars of African theology will find this book helpful. I cannot recommend it enough."

Prof Harvey Kwiyani, CEO, Global Connections.
