Item description for Towards an African Narrative Theology (Faith and Cultures Series) by Joseph Healey, Robert J. Schreiter & Donald Sybertz...
Overview This book is the fruit of many years of collecting the proverbs and wisdom sayings that are both paradigmatic expressions of traditional African self-understanding and the best place to begin a study of African Christian theology. Fathers Joseph Healy and Donald Sybertz make a major contribution to articulating a full blown African theology, a project that only Africans, ultimately, can do for themselves. Towards an African Narrative Theology explores how proverbs, stories, and wisdom sayings reveal the shape of Christianity's inculturation in Africa and alert readers to the need to open minds and hearts to new ways of looking at the Christian mysteries.
Publishers Description Reflects what traditional proverbs used in Christian catechetical, liturgical, and ritual contexts reveal about Tanzanian appropriations of and interpretations of Christianity.

Towards An African Narrative Theology Nov 6, 2001
What I appreciate about these men who wrote the book is the understanding they have of Sukuma culture. The proverbs, parables, and illustrations are priceless. What I like about this book is they share HOW they contextualized the Gospel to the Sukuma. Very practical book with much insights. It was GOLD when I found it. Praise God for these men sharing this helpful info who have served for over 25 years. I plan on using many of the insights as I work in the Mwanza area in the slums and squatter areas.
