Singing and Dancing for God

A Theological Reflection on Indigenous Hymns in Sumu za Ukhristu

by Augustine Chingwala Musopole

No sooner had northern Malawians started to become Christians in the late 19th century, than they began to compose hymns. Rather than attempting rational discourse or literary production, their first instinct was to sing and dance their faith. In this book Augustine Musopole offers us the first comprehensive analysis of the theology found in the hymns - a ground-breaking contribution to our understanding of African Christianity.
