African Christian Ethics

african christian theology kunhiyop samuel waje

He explores traditional African understandings of God and how he reveals himself, the African understanding of sin and way the Bible sees sin, and how the work of Christ can be understood in African terms. I was expecting a way for ethics to be applied that is indigenously African as though it is not one God, one Gospel and one Savior of all. The book concludes with a discussion of biblical thinking on death and the afterlife in which it also addresses the role traditionally ascribed to African ancestors. I would also encourage any who want to loosen their ethnocentric grasp on theology to read this book, even if they have little or no experience of African cultures. In fact it was the answer I was not looking for. At times it is helpful, as he shows where many Westerners take Western philosophy as Christian. As such, it speaks not only to Africans but to all who seek to understand and live out their faith in their own societies.

Each chapter begins with an introduction, discusses traditional African thinking on the issue, presents an analysis of relevant biblical material, and concludes with some recommendations.
