Christian Spirituality in Africa

  • By Sung Kyu Park
Description: Christian Spirituality in Africa holistically approaches the convergence of East/West, and Christian/Traditional African religions. Its theological, historical, and anthropological perspectives contribute to a balanced understanding of Christian spirituality/transformation in an African context. Endorsements: ""In this important study, you will find not only a useful and balanced discussion of theology of spirituality in biblical and historical perspectives--which alone would make the book worth reading--but also a careful and insightful investigation into the peculiar and salient features of spirituality among some African Christian communities. This is must-reading for everyone who seeks to minister in the East African context and beyond."" --Veli-Matti Karkkainen, Fuller Theological Seminary ""This brings the Western theological tradition into discussion with the local context of spiritual development. The author plays both insider and outsider roles and integrates the two with integrity. He is critical but positive in his understanding of spirituality as a theological and cultural phenomenon. He does this with the integrity of an academic theologian and a skilled practitioner who has been involved over a long period of time with spiritual formation."" --Julian C. Muller, University of Pretoria ""Combining his theological zeal, cultural awareness and sensitivity, and more than ten years of missionary experience in Africa, Park has contributed to the spiritual formation in Kenya that will flow into mature, effective, and fruitful Christian experiences. A must-read for students of theology, pastors, missionaries, and Christian educators and workers."" --Bonifes Adoyo, Pan Africa Christian University About the Contributor(s): Sung Kyu Park (BA, University of California Los Angeles; MDiv, Talbot School of Theology; ThM, Fuller Seminary; PhD, University of Pretoria). He has been a missionary in Kenya for more than 10 years. He is director/founder of Africa Gospel Outreach ministries (AGO). He also teaches theology at Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology (NEGST)."
