  The book brought a new perspective to theology in the United States. Cone contends that theology grows out of the experience of the community; the community itself defines what God means. Western European theology serves the oppressors; therefore theology for African-Americans should validate their struggle for liberation and s: Two major strands of theology have developed in Africa - inculturation and liberation - each in response to different needs. Emmanuel Martey's African Theology provides a clear, scholarly examination of these two basic approaches, solidly based on Martey's understanding of contemporary theology and his first-hand knowledge of Africa. Martey first examines the historical background of each of.

Research in the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Among his recent books are A Theology of Reconstruction: Nation Building and Human Rights (Cambridge University Press, ) and The Spirit of Freedom: Conversations with South African Leaders on Religion and Politics (Berkeley, University of California Press, ).   Meditation is as old as African spirituality itself. Almost every religion on the planet uses meditation as a tool for spiritual fortification and communion with the infinite. Some forms of meditation focus on the body, while others help the initiate draw closer to the Most High.

  Christian Theology and African Traditions takes seriously this present recognition of the southward movement of Christianity from the western world to a non-western setting.

A data base, archive and resources and publications on theology in Africa, religious studies, and social issues to help you in your research on African theology, pastoral life, social ministries, biblical studies, mission studies and important themes and topics of general interest in African Christian studies.

Within his activity in the world a distinction is often made between the operation of his 'common grace' and that of his 'special grace', and this distinction may be helpfully applied to healing. Since there are no sacred books on which to base the study of African traditional religion except on the proverbs, folklores, oral tradition, ethics and morals of African societies, we shall, in this study, critically analyze some major concepts of African traditional religion in order to establish how Africans reason about the world around.
