  • Journal of African Christian Biography: Cumulative Volume 2016 (June to December)

    Restrick, Beth; Bonk, Jonathan; Sanneh, Lamin; Robert, Dana; Sigg, Michele; Bonk, Jonathan; Belcher, Wendy Laura; Dindamo, Belaynesh; Robert, Dana; Malambugi, Angolowsye; et al. (Dictionary of African Christian Biography, 2019-05-23)
    A publication of the Dictionary of African Christian Biography with U.S. offices located at the Center for Global Christianity and Mission at Boston University. The editors are pleased to offer the first annual cumulative volume of the Journal of African Christian Biography, the monthly scholarly publication that was launched in June of 2016. Since then, the life stories of twelve individuals who played vital roles in and through their faith communities have been published online as free downloads. But it is important that a selection of DACB stories be more readily available to those without access to the internet. As I mentioned in the fall 2016 newsletter of the DACB, each issue of the journal is available in its e-journal, on-line version, where it is configured either as A4 or 8.5 x 11 format printable as booklets, ready for local printing and binding or stapling. Our intention is to make it easy for academics and church leaders in various parts of Africa to make print copies of the journal available to their students, colleagues or church members. And so it is with this cumulative volume.

  • The Impact of Sunday School Participation on Spiritual Formation in African American Baptist Churches in North Carolina

    Harris, Christopher Eugene (Scholars Crossing, 2020-12-01)
    The purpose of this correlational quantitative study was to determine a relationship between Sunday School participation and spiritual formation upon participating congregations of the General Baptist State Convention of North Carolina (GBSCNC). The process of spiritual formation comes through the spiritual disciplines being practiced. The spiritual disciplines were measured through the study sample of GBSCNC churches in this study using four spiritual development modes from the Christian Spiritual Participation Profile: growing through a relationship with God, growing through the Word, growing through critical reflection, and growing through relationships with others (Thayer, 1996). The research findings were based on a sample of 289 GBSCNC congregants attending Sunday school. Nagelkerke r correlation, logistic regression analysis, Hosmer and Lemeshow Goodness-of-Fit test, and independent t-tests were used to answer the research questions and test the hypotheses. Several relationships between the variables were observed, especially a high correlation between Sunday school participation and the disciplines of fellowship and evangelism. Other strong correlations included reading the Bible and mediation, service and fellowship, service and evangelism, critical reflection and repentance, and repentance and prayer. From these results, the researcher recommended further study of other African American denominations that are affiliated with an ethnicity other than their own. The findings were used to propose a model to local church Christian education leaders to promote and measure congregational spiritual formation.
  • ¿Es África para los africanos? Un acercamiento a la polémica entre Marcel Lefebvre e Ibrahim Niasse

    Universidad de Sevilla. Departamento de Filosofía y Lógica y Filosofía de la Ciencia; Ministerio de Educación y Ciencia (MEC). España; de Diego González, Antonio (2015-02-27)
    Este trabajo propone un acercamiento a la polémica entre Marcel Lefebvre e Ibrahim Niasse ocurrida a principios de los años 60. El Arzobispo de Dakar escribió una carta contra el Islam en África, pero Niasse defendió el carácter multicultural e integrador de éste en Senegal. La polémica no solo es interesante para la historia de las relaciones islamo-cristianas en África, sino para poder ver las constantes tensiones de la identidad senegalesa entre el papel “fantasmal” de las antiguas autoridades coloniales y las nuevas estrategias de los musulmanes africanos.
