"I encourage all African Catholic leaders, scholars, and change agents to read, digest, and embrace the proposals of the incisive essays in this volume so that you can get a deeper understanding of what it means to be a Christian in Africa today. These African scholars teach us the meaning of faith in action and how this looks like in the Africa of today. You will come to learn about so many people in Africa who are perhaps least known, but are inspirational in our broken world, where faith gets easily shaken by all the bad things we witness, and also absorb from social media." --Rosemary Nyirumbe, Founder, Sewing Hope Foundation, Uganda "A timely, reflective, hopeful, and re-awakening kairos for the church in Africa and beyond. The authors invite us to reimagine a vibrant, inclusive, compassionate, caring, peaceful, and engaging church in Africa, and its peoples, in a post-Covid-19 context. Journeying with these great women and men of Africa in this volume, I have been challenged to reflect on my faith as an African woman religious, and to put it into action. I invite you to take this journey, too. Who knows what you will discover? The volume will be of interest to clerics, religious, theologians, academics, students, and practitioners in the fields of peace, education, and health." --Wamuyu Teresia Wachira, BVM, St. Paul's University, Nairobi, Kenya "The Pan-African Catholic Congress--with the theme of what we must do to perform the work of God (John 6:28)--was a momentous event for the church in Africa. These thoughtful and incisive essays invite Africa and the world church to a theology of hope and value orientation to advance the best possible means of studying theology and its application in pastoral ministry, so as to arrive at renewed and suitable approaches to faith in the social context of today's Africa." --Albert Ikpenwa, Rector, Bigard Memorial Seminary, Enugu, Nigeria "This book fittingly commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of the Symposium of Epis­copal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar (SECAM), and the 1994 and 2009 Afri­can Synods of Bishops. This second volume is especially noteworthy for establishing theoretical and practical foundations for the palaver method of theologizing in Afri­can contexts. It also provides concrete studies that explore how this method engages crucial issues across a range of urgent and timely topics in economics, health care, conflict situations, and more. These are indispensable volumes for theological and university libraries, and for academic, pastoral, and contextual research." --Bradford Hinze, Fordham University, Bronx, New York
