📒Surveying Christianity S African Roots Paperback ✍ Jimmie Compton
✏Surveying Christianity s African Roots Paperback Book Summary : A survey of the rational, organized, thriving, scripturally informed and Holy Spirit-inspired roots of indigenous Christianity in Africa. Christian faith communities there had existed centuries before the First Council of Nicaea, before Rome adopted Christianity, before the Byzantine Empire and before King James commissioned a compilation of the Bible. African Christians' faith in Jesus Christ, perseverance, suffering, sacrifice, exegetical principles, theological dogma and canonical processes were instrumental to the foundation and institutions of Western Christianity.
📒Christianity In South Africa ✍ Richard Elphick
✏Christianity in South Africa Book Summary : "At a strategic time in South Africa's history, the Christian history which is absolutely basic to all developments, is presented in a comprehensive and objective way. Too little attention is given to the influence of religion in socio-political accounts. This is a creative and much-needed contribution to scholarship and general knowledge. . . . An outstanding work."--Dean S. Gilliland, Fuller Theological Seminary

✏Christianity in Africa Book Summary : "A significant book by one of Africa's foremost theologians." --Missionalia. ---- "Bediako's fine, lucidly written book should enjoy a wide and appreciative readership" -- Religious studies Review. [from back cover]

📒Christian Reflection In Africa ✍ Paul Bowers
✏Christian Reflection in Africa Book Summary : This reference collection presents academic reviews of more than twelve-hundred contemporary Africa-related publications relevant for informed Christian reflection in and about Africa. The collection is based on the review journal BookNotes for Africa, a specialist resource dedicated to bringing to notice such publications, and furnishing them with a one-paragraph description and evaluation. Now assembled here for the first time is the entire collection of reviews through the first thirty issues of the journal’s history. The core intention, both of the journal and of this compilation, is to encourage and to facilitate informed Christian reflection and engagement in Africa, through a thoughtful encounter with the published intellectual life of the continent. Reviews have been provided by a team of more than one hundred contributors drawn from throughout Africa and overseas. The books and other media selected for review represent a broad cross-section of interests and issues, of personalities and interpretations, including the secular as well as the religious. The collection will be of special interest to academic scholars, theological educators, libraries, ministry leaders, and specialist researchers in Africa and throughout the world, but will also engage any reader looking for a convenient resource relating to modern Africa and Christian presence there.
✏Choice Book Summary :
📒Infected Christianity ✍ Alan T. Davies
✏Infected Christianity Book Summary : As Germany played a pivotal role in recent developments of racism, Davies discusses the Germanic Christ first and most extensively. He analyzes French Roman-Catholic racism, particularly its role in the Third Republic, through discussion of the "Latin" Christ. His study of the Anglo-Saxon Christ covers both English and American expressions of racism and their links to imperialism. This is followed by a discussion of Afrikaner racism, and an exploration of black nationalism in the United States and its advocacy of a black Christ. Davies concludes with a discussion of the theological problems arising from the five racial Christs surveyed and the dilemmas posed by the attempt to cast a universal religion in a particular cultural mould.
