A quest for a unique African Christian theology and methodology in the light of Charles Nyamiti

  • Dominic Obielosi

European missionaries introduced the message of Jesus Christ to most Africans based on their own culture and mentality. Nyamiti has questioned this premise and solicits for a unique African Christian theology that is self-same Christian doctrine expressed and presented in accordance with what he describes as "African mentality and needs." It is in line with this that African Christian theologians are confronted with three conflicting worlds: Christian faith, African culture and modernization. Nyamiti in a quest to clear these conflicting worlds attempts to fuse the African world views and mentality with the Christian faith in order to better incarnate the message of Christ into the life of the African people.
