Beschreibung

African Ancestral Heritage in Christian Interpretations is packaged to be one of the best books on African Traditional Religion (ATR) and culture, if only because it discusses what African ancestors/ancestresses represent in critical terms, compared in some instances with Christian values. What are the heritages bequeathed by the African ancestors and ancestresses? They include religious, philosophical, ethico-moral, medical/scientific, artistic, etc heritages, leading to a review of African Christian Theology in its inculturation and liberation dimensions. The advocates and opponents of the theology are juxtaposed. Is there a religion without idolatry and fetishism? What is the implication of religious rivalry for Africa's sanity and unity? Who are the beneficiaries of the denigration of African ancestors/ancestresses: is it the Christo-Islamic clerics or common Africans who constitute the "members", "flock", "congregation", ummah?
