    Pan Africanism and the New Diaspora: African Christians in the United States.Abolade Ezekiel Olagoke - 2002 - Dissertation, The Iliff School of Theology and University of Denver
    African immigrants in the United States struggle with alienation from their homeland, adjustment to a new culture, and existential angst as minority within a minority. Faith communities remain one of the ever-increasing numbers of communities formed by these immigrants to cope with transition into a new culture. One of such faith communities is the African Christian Church in Aurora, Colorado. This project examines and explores the central role of Christianity as an adaptive mechanism. Furthermore, the role of the Christian religion (...)

    Paul Ricoeur's Philosophy as a Source for a Christian Apologetic in Africa.Peters Yakubu Otijele - 1984 - Dissertation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
    Some contemporary adherents of African Traditional Religion denounce Christianity as irrelevant and meaningless to Africans. They commend their religion as a viable alternative to Christianity in Africa. Using Paul Ricoeur's philosophy as a source, the dissertation formulates an apologetic methodological model. The first two chapters present the major apologetic problem as a lack of an adequate understanding of the significance of some themes of African Traditional Religion in the task of interpreting Christianity in Africa. ;An exposition and structural description of (...)

    A Therapeutic Community as a Relevant and Efficient Ecclesial Model in African Christianity.Matsobane Manala - 2016 - Hts Theological Studies 72 (4):1-8.
    This article sets forth the argument that Christian ministry in Africa must become socially and culturally informed and constructed or else it will not touch the African soul and thus remain superficial. Black African people aspire above everything else to experience fullness of life and wellbeing here and now, as demonstrated by their greetings that are actually an enquiry into each other's health and an expression of the wish for the other's good health and wellbeing. The mainline churches that operate (...)

    Innocent Onyewuenyi’s “Philosophical Re-Appraisal of the African Belief in Reincarnation”: A Conversational Study.Mesembe Ita Edet - 2016 - Filosofia Theoretica: Journal of African Philosophy, Culture and Religions 5 (1):76-99.
    Reincarnation has received substantial treatment in African philosophy. The dominant view of African scholars and researchers on the subject is that it is a belief that prevails in African culture. The task of this paper is to revisit Innocent Onyewuenyi’s “philosophical reappraisal” of this African belief. Onyewuenyi’s position is that the African communion with ancestors and their influence on their living descendant’s has been incorrectly labeled “reincarnation” by Western anthropologists. But whereas Onyewuenyi portrays the problem as being one of semantics, (...)

    Morality Truly Christian, Truly African: Foundational, Methodological, and Theological Considerations.Paulinus Ikechukwu Odozor - 2014 - University of Notre Dame Press.
    Given the largely Eurocentric nature of moral theology in the history of the Roman Catholic Church, what will it take to invest the theological community in the history and moral challenges of the Church in other parts of the world, especially Africa? What is to be gained for the whole Church when this happens in a deep and lasting way? In this timely and important study, Paulinus Ikechukwu Odozor brings greater theological clarity to the issue of the relationship between Christianity (...)

    A Philosophical Comparison of John 1:1-18 and the Yoruba Concept of ÒrÒ.Cyril-Mary P. Olatunji & Olugbenga O. Alabi - 2014 - Cultura 11 (1):99-112.
    The concept of ÒrÒ among the Yoruba people in Nigeria has a lot in common with the biblical concept of Λoγos. This paper explores Λoγos as derived from Greek Logos translated as Word into English, and its parallelisms with ÒrÒ a fêted concept among the Yoruba. The paper provides evidence that both conceptsare related to exoteric functions within their distinct cultural communities. Finally, the paper opens these issues to the possibilities of cross-cultural research and semiotics.

    The Problem of Destiny in Akan and Yoruba Traditional Thoughts: A Comparative Analysis of the Works of Wiredu, Gyekye and Gbadegesin.M. H. Majeed - 2014 - Journal of Philosophy and Culture (JPC) 5 (1).
    Many African scholars have expressed varied thoughts about the concept of a person, specifically about that which constitutes a person in African philosophy. These philosophers include Kwasi Wiredu, Kwame Gyekye and Segun Gbadegesin. What they have in common, though, is that their ideas on the concept of a person issue largely from the traditional philosophies of some West African peoples. Wiredu and Gyekye reflect on Akan conceptions while Gbadegesin carries out his discussions from the Yoruba cultural perspective. This paper examines (...)

    An Intertextual Soteriological Analysis of African Traditional Religion.Douglas E. Thomas - 2003 - Dissertation, Temple University
    African traditional religion is a highly non-dogmatic spiritual lifestyle that is practiced by millions of people around the world. Some African scholars argue that it is related to the religion practiced by the African Egyptians during the Dynastic Period. This study examines the nature of African traditional religion in an effort to determine the common attributes of the religion of the continent. In fact, the focal point of this study is the West African religious experience. To make this examination, the (...)

    This study examines the interactions of Christian and Yoruba cultures through the funeral of a Yoruba Christian successively held in Ibadan and Ilesa in southwestern Nigeria. Strict Africological paradigms were used in all aspects of this study, including participant observation, interviews, data collection and analysis. ;The study reveals that Christianity affects the Yoruba pervasively including the: enhancement of an individualistic ethos, withering of family and communal bonds, promotion of Yoruba cultural illiteracy, mystification of the Yoruba value judgement, metropolitization of the (...)

    A Critical Evaluation of J. N. K. Mugambi's Correlation of Christianity with the African Heritage: An Apologetic Perspective. [REVIEW]Isaac Mcdonald Tioneni Mwase - 1993 - Dissertation, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
    J. N. K. Mugambi has emerged as an African scholar who has made a significant contribution to the discussion of the relationship between Christianity and the African heritage. Until now the most recognizable contributor to the discussion has been Mugambi's fellow countryman, John Mbiti. Although not a newcomer in African theologizing, only during the last decade Mugambi has become widely published. He is in touch with not only Africa's rich heritage but also the philosophical theologizing in the non-African world. This (...)

    A Pastoral Examination of the Christian Church’s Response to Fears of and Reactions to Witchcraft Amongst African People in the Limpopo Province of South Africa.M. Elijah Baloyi - 2014 - Hts Theological Studies 70 (2):01-09.
    ABSTRACT Amongst other things, African culture (societies) has been characterised by its perception and fear of witchcraft. Even though the belief in witchcraft is an old phenomenon, its growth is revealed and to some extent mitigated by videos, films and accounts and stories of church ministers. Whilst some Christian worship services have been turned into witchcraft-centred campaigns against witchcraft, a second group perceive witchcraft as a way of getting rid of one's enemies and a third group see it as the (...)

    Belief in the Spirits of the Dead in Africa: A Philosophical Interpretation.Crispinous Iteyo - 2009 - Thought and Practice: A Journal of the Philosophical Association of Kenya 1 (1):151-163.
    This paper offers a philosophical interpretation of belief in the spirits of the dead in Africa, with a view to identifying rational grounds for accepting or rejecting them. This endeavour is premised on the view that in this rapidly changing world,philosophy should inquire not only in to theoretical problems, but also into practical ones. Plato and Aristotle’s theories of the soul being some of the most carefully discussed philosophical theories on immortality or lack of it, will provide the background of (...)

    In this article the aesthetical practical theological notion of fragment, as introduced by the German Practical Theologian Henning Luther, was brought into dialogue with the African understanding of fullness, as articulated for instance in the concept Ubunye [we are one]. In the light of this, some basic tensions of worshipping in Africa were profiled, id est the dynamic interaction between individuality and communality, between the already and the not yet (present and future), between identity as being and identity as becoming, (...)
