African Origins of Monotheism
Challenging the Eurocentric Interpretation of God Concepts on the Continent and in Diaspora
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Gwinyai H. Muzorewa's African Origins of Monotheism is a seminal work in theology, history, and cultural studies. Not since the work of John Mbiti has an African scholar taken on the issues of African theology with such insightful and critical interpretation. This is sure to be one of the important books of our times."
--Molefi Kete Asante, Temple University, Philadelphia, PA
"This book is a timely contribution to the ongoing debate of broadening theological assumptions about God and the world we inhabit."
--Jimmy G. Dube, United Theological College, Harare, Zimbabwe
"Muzorewa reflects with exceptional clarity, balance, and insight on the different names and concepts of God. Worshiping a monotheistic God is something an African does not have to think twice (about) because that has been their way of life since time immemorial. This book is a timely, balanced, essential reading for those interested in the richness of African theology."
--Beauty R. Maenzanise, Africa University, Mutare, Zimbabwe
