Course: MARY AFST 550: Gospel and Culture: The African Experience

Course Overview
A systematic presentation of the interaction between African Cultures and the Christian Gospel.

Course Description:
Christianity in Africa is challenged by the resilience of African Culture. This has been the case wherever the Gospel has been preached. In turn, Christianity has challenged African Culture as it has done everywhere and throughout the ages.

This course is geared towards articulating this mutual challenge in terms of the resultant African Christian Culture that is still evolving. It will assess how far it contributes to the continuing mission of God in Africa through Christianity.

Approach:

An exploration of the interaction between Christianity and African Culture through lectures, book reviews, discussions and field researches.
