Theology in Malawi

Prospects for the 2020s

edited by Kenneth R. Ross, Mzee Hermann Yokoniah Mvula

A small piece of academic history was enacted when a National Theology Conference convened at Nkhoma Mission from 24 to 26 September 2020. Despite the challenging conditions caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the conference attracted some 50 theologians, coming from at least 12 different institutions. This book offers the results of their deliberations to a wider audience. With a particular orientation to biblical studies, faith and culture, and faith and society, they have set the tone for theology in Malawi in the 2020s. One result of the conference was a fresh appreciation of the benefits of working together and the creation of the Theological Society.
