AbstractThesis (M.Th.)-University of Natal, Pietermaritzburg, 2002.
The driving force behind this study is to unconventionaly state that the cultural anthropological insight of Zulu people and pastoral - theological practice of Christianity can contribute in the sadness caused by mv - AIDS. This calls for conversion, transformation and healing of the many factors that confront the society. Hence a need of ownership on issues that confront Africans as they engage in global affairs.
