Theology Cooked in an African Pot

edited by Klaus Fiedler

The thesis of this study is that a working Christian theology is constructed under the spirits' guidance from pre-Christian materials'. These materials or vessels are epitomised by 'pots' which in Africa seem to be ubiquitous in times of happiness or sorrow, in peace or war, at work or leisure, or wherever two or three meet for a purpose. Clearly the 'African Pots' here represent the African World View, traditions, anthropology, and indeed African epistemology which according to these authors, have to form the substratum of the faith and life of the Christians in Africa.
