Abstract

The Routledge Handbook of African Theology is designed to invite readers to explore aspects of ­theology in Africa. We set out to present a volume that captures elements of theology on the continent as a way of giving readers a snapshot of what some of the leading theologians and scholars think today. We asked the contributors to focus on introducing the theological idea, define it, give readers an overview of the theological motif, theoretically, historically, or thematically, as a way of documenting the history of the theological concept. Contributors also had the choice of developing the theological motif or offering a critical constructive narrative and laying out new theological positions. The positions expressed remains those of the individual scholars and theologians. The goal was to cast a long glance on the history of theology in Africa, by going on a journey with the authors, as they explore specific topics. We are delighted to offer this volume as one of the snapshots of theological adventures in Africa that should serve as a conversation starter and reference work on selected topics in African theology. This book is a reference work that provides targeted insight to invite a broad and robust theological dialogue in the African context.
