An Integrated Approach to Theological Contextualization in Africa
Full recordShow full item record
AbstractThis article probes manifestations of theological contextualization in Africa from pre-colonial through colonial and post-colonial times to the present time and compares it with its biblical antecedent. The thrust of the article is that while theological contextualization in Africa has assumed different models throughout its historical periodization, its objective ought to be in consonance with the Bible. Accordingly, it must seek to articulate the self-revelation of God in different cultures using contextualizing cues appropriate and natural to the comprehensive worldview of recipients in a manner that maintains unflinching fidelity to the unchanging content of God’s self-revelation found in the Bible.
