Pauline Inspirations for the Study of Igbo Deities

JC Obidigbo

Abstract


Since its inception in 1974/ 77, the need for African theology is growing by the day. Theologians on their part have also proved their readiness to delve into this all important field. However, the journey so far has taken a one-sided approach as most theologians always begin from their Christian background. The result is that even when they present coherent studies, the very Africans for whom they are meant find it difficult to accept and adopt them mostly for the obvious reason that they neglect the most fundamental aspects of their traditional religion and culture.
