African Christian Studies Series

This series will make available significant works in the field of African Christian studies. African Christian studies is defined here as any scholarship which relates to themes and issues on the history, nature, identity, character and relevance of African Christianity and the place of African Christian mission within the wider African history, and world Christianity. It also refers to topics which address the continuing search for abundant life for Africans through multiple appeals to African religions and African Christianity in a challenging social context. The series will cater to scholarly and educational texts in the areas of religious studies, theology, mission studies, biblical studies, philosophy, social justice, and other diverse issues current in African Christianity. We define these studies broadly and specifically as primarily focused on new voices, fresh perspectives, new methodologies, new approaches, historical and cultural analyses which are emerging because of the significant place of African Christianity and African religio-cultural traditions in world Christianity.

The books in this series are expected to make significant contributions in historicizing trends in African Christian studies, while shifting the contemporary discourse in these areas from narrow theological concerns to a broader interdisciplinary and multi-methodical engagement with African religio-cultural history and traditions. The series intends to continually fill a gap in African scholarship, especially in the areas of social analysis in African Christian studies, African philosophies, new biblical and narrative hermeneutical approaches to African theologies, the challenges facing African women in today's Africa and within African Christianity. Themes in African Traditional Religions, African ecology, African ecclesiology, intercultural, interethnic, and interreligious dialogue, creative inculturation, African theology of development, reconciliation, and leadership in the church, globalization, and poverty reduction will also be covered in this series. It will also accommodate issues emanating from ethnic and religious identities, as well as those around ethnic minorities and other marginal voices in Africa that are currently mobilizing for inclusion and representation.
