The Missionary and the Diviner
Publication date: 2013-05-17
ISBN: 9780883445846
Through a series of conversations, a Christian missionary and an African diviner challenge and compare one another's views on fundamental theological questions: the meaning of God; family and community; sickness and healing; death and the afterlife, good and evil. Their dicussions tellingly reveal both the vitality of traditional African religions and Christianity's ethnocentrism when faced with certain basic issues in Africa. In a larger sense, The Missionary and the Diviner demonstarates how--and why--a cultural approach to evangelization is essential for the indigenization of Christianity.Kirwen, M, Michael C. Kirwen
