Course Memo

The Course will critically examine the contribution of African theologies and ethics to global Christianity. Using the cultural hermeneutical method, it will start by assessing the work of evangelization in the colonial period and its implications on Christianity in Africa. Then it will investigate a veritable African theological discourse and the ethical values that are critically recognized and assumed by this discourse. The Course will cover the fundamental sources of African Christian theologies; inculturation, its meaning, definitions, challenges and applications; the question of Liberation theology in Africa; various approaches and challenges to doing theology in Africa.
