about

Father Uzukwu details how patterns of African ritual assemblies and sacred narratives have merged with Jewish, Gospel, and early Church traditions to create living Christian communities and liturgies. This book throws new light on liturgical action and theology using a socio-historical method. It suggests the use of more transition rituals, and it provides samples of emergent African Christian liturgies that emphasize intense community participation with appropriate gestures.
