Everyone who has "eyes to see" acknowledges the growing importance of the African church to the future of global Christianity. But what does it mean for the church to take root in Africa? How should the message of the gospel and the practice of Christianity be contextualized for Africa? African Contextual Realities addresses many of the questions surrounding contextualization from a practical point of view and is the fruit of the 6th Annual Conference of the Africa Society of Evangelical Theology held in Nairobi in 2016. The book explores such questions as:

  • In what ways should the mission of God be universally recognizable in every cultural context?
  • In our efforts to contextualize, how do we avoid compromising the very gospel we are to proclaim?

  • How can the African church wean itself away from dependency on the Western church?

  • How does Christianity speak into some of the cultural and social issues arising out of contemporary African settings - issues like widow cleansing, Christian-Muslim relations, and peace-building?

All those who are interested to learn more about the contextualization of African Christianity will find this volume to be an important resource.
