An Analysis of the Christologies of John Samuel Pobee and Kwame Bediako in Conversation with the Theology of Karl Barth
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"The phenomenal growth of Christianity as a non-Western religion has made theological studies on the interface between faith and culture even more imperative. In this study Charles Aye-Addo has served the African church and theological academy well by building excellently on the theological christological traditions of stalwarts like Kwame Bediako. This book is a welcome and timely contribution to the important literature on Christology from African perspectives."
--J. Kwabena Asamoah-Gyadu, Professor of African Christianity, Trinity Theological Seminary
"Is the goal of Christology to render Jesus Christ familiar and 'at home' within a cultural context? Or is the task of theology to continually renew the strangeness of Jesus to every cultural context, against ever-present tendencies toward domestication and proprietary control? These are difficult and risky questions to ask in postcolonial Africa. In this challenging new book, Charles Aye-Addo has the courage both to ask them and to struggle toward fresh answers."
--Chris Boesel, Associate Professor of Christian Theology, Drew University
