About-

There is probably no set of issues of greater importance in the contemporary world than those that are to do with the Earth on which we live and depend. The more alienated we become from it the more we contribute to our own destruction. Christianity’s complicity in this destruction is well-documented and hotly debated. Africa can ill afford to fall into the same trap that Western Christianity has in this regard. One senses the urgency of these concerns in Blasu’s African Theocology: Studies in African Religious Creation Care. Extremely well-informed in the field, Blasu not only draws on the three major religions in Africa—Christianity, Islam, and African traditional religion—but demonstrates familiarity with the most important recent contributions in the field from Western scholarship. With its emphasis on pedagogics, African Theocology will play a seminal role in the construction of curricula for an African Christian theology of the environment and is sure to be an essential contribution to all libraries in institutions of higher learning.
