Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus of Africa: Voices of Contemporary African Christology (Faith and Cultures Series)?

A seminary student's review  Apr 19, 2007
In Jesus of Africa, Diane Stinton seeks to capture images of Jesus in Africa according to images and words used by Africans. In doing so, she hopes to use the voices of Africans to support and critique the images brought forth and to evaluate their appropriateness for deepening the Christian faith in the African context. One important note is that in her research, Stinton focuses on the missional churches as opposed to indigenous-founded churches. Stinton carries out her research through literature review and extensive field research (interviews and focus groups) in Kenya, Ghana and Uganda in the years 1998 and 1999. Stinton's presentation of her findings is academic, appropriate for theologians, professors, students or missionaries.
Testimony, faith, and experiences of people living in Africa  Jul 9, 2004
Jesus Of Africa: Voices Of Contemproary African Christology reviews both the theologies of French and English-speaking African scholars and clergy, and also relates how African lay people regard Jesus Christ. Thoughtfully written for scholars, students, and mission professionals especially, Jesus Of Africa is a unique theological work covering the origins and modern-day revelance of Christian teachings in Africa, as well as models of contemporary African Christologies including Jesus as Life-Giver, Mediator, Loved One, and Leader. An in-depth evaluation that draws directly upon the testimony, faith, and experiences of people living in Africa today.
